TL1 Predoctoral Training Programs

Year-Out Program for Medical Students

GrossThe CTSI supports medical students interested in a year-out experience of mentored research in clinical or translational research. We anticipate most students will enter through the Academic Research Track (ART), since the ART curriculum was the basis for the program developed within the CTSI. While participation in ART is strongly encouraged, it is not required for application for CTSI support. Students who are selected as CTSI scholars receive stipend support. Students who are interested in pursuing a Master's degree during the year-out are encouraged to do so. Requirements for all students include participation in an approved Ethics course, certification in human subjects research, and completion of a research paper after the research experience.

The Academic Research Track (ART) will provide selected medical students, strongly motivated to pursue an academic career in medicine that encompasses research, with a broad and deep exposure to basic, clinical, educational, or translational research, involving both didactic and mentored research experiences through an enriched medical school curriculum.

Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)

O'BanionThis program allows students interested in careers in medical science to undertake doctoral-level training in both clinical medicine and research. Students earn both an MD and a PhD. Rochester’s MSTP provides an outstanding faculty and a wide diversity of research training opportunities found only in our nation's leading biomedical research and clinical training centers. The CTSI provides support for students interested in careers in clinical and translational science to take part in the program. If you would like additional information regarding the MSTP Program, please use the link below or contact Dr. Kerry O'Banion, the Program Director.

PhD in Translational Biomedical Science (TBS) Program

PJThe goal of the program is to prepare individuals for academic and clinical careers relating to the translation of basic biomedical research into clinical strategies to improve health. Through feedback from clinical situations, program graduates will also target and stimulate basic scientific research in pursuit of causes of disease and optimal therapies to prevent and cure disease.

To improve human health, fundamental scientific discoveries and critically evaluated clinical observations must be translated into practical clinical applications. Important discoveries from “the bench” of basic biomedical research performed at the molecular or cellular level must progress to the clinical level, to the “bedside”. Key observations at “the bedside” stimulate scientists to examine pathophysiologic phenomena and to devise new approaches to elucidate disease mechanisms and therapeutic approaches based on such demonstrated causes. The University of Rochester’s tradition of excellence in education and research extends to its mission to improve health through the School of Medicine and Dentistry. The CTSI provides some support for students interested in careers in clinical and translational science to take part in the program.
