Surgical Oncology T32 Trainee
compensatedSurgical Oncology T32 Trainee Washington University School of Medicine Training slots are available for the Surgical Oncology Basic Science and Translational Research Training Program at Washington University School of Medicine. The goal of our program is to provide surgical trainees the opportunity to develop fundamental skill sets in basic science, translational, and public health research. The training program typically includes a focused mentored research experience with opportunities to participate in formal coursework through the Clinical Research Training Center and the Division of Public Health Sciences, with the potential to obtain a Master’s degree. The program offers eight positions per year. Appointments are typically two to three years in duration. Candidates must be U.S. Citizens or permanent residents to qualify, and must be surgical trainees in an ACGME surgical training program. Stipends for living expenses and health allowance are provided, along with a small budget for supplies, travel, and research expenses. Trainees are expected to be committed to full-time basic research training (40 hours/week) with a two-year commitment (no clinical responsibility will be expected of the trainees) and are required to complete training in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). Additionally, trainees are required to provide annual progress reports during and after the period of support.
