Baylor College of Medicine
Date Posted: September 1, 2021

The Baylor College of Medicine Research Training Program in Cardiovascular Surgery is designed to prepare MD surgical residents and PhD post-doctoral fellows for an academic career in cardiovascular surgical research. Funded by a T32 grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, our program is led by principal investigator/program director Todd K. Rosengart, MD, chair of the Department of Surgery, and program co-directors, Scott A. LeMaire, MD, vice chair for research, and Barbara W. Trautner, MD, PhD, director of clinical research. The program provides salary and educational support to two (MD or PhD) trainees per year, for two years each. Postdoctoral MD and PhD trainees accepted into the program will engage in a mentored research project which will be complemented by a set of core program activities, team science training, and responsible conduct of research training. All T32 faculty mentors have active research programs, have been successful in securing extramural funding, and have a strong commitment to training the next generation of cardiovascular surgeon-scientists and PhD investigators. Eligibility • Postdoctoral candidates who are MDs in their second or third year of surgical residency and PhD postdoctoral fellows, all with a strong interest in cardiovascular research. Surgery resident applicants must be willing to delay the completion of their clinical training for two years. • Citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, or those lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence. Applications are due Friday January 7, 2022 by 5pm CST. Selections will be made in early March 2022.
