Description of Program

The goal of this NIDDK-sponsored training program, centered in the Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, is to prepare pre- and post-doctoral (MD, PhD, and MD/PhD) fellows for digestive diseases-related careers in academia, government, and industry. We recruit pre-doctoral trainees primarily from the Molecular Medicine track of the Graduate Program in Life Sciences, the Department of Microbiology & Immunology, and the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences within the School of Pharmacy. We recruit postdoctoral trainees primarily from the Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology Fellowship and Surgical Research programs. In this inter-disciplinary program, a productive, well-funded senior faculty with exceptional mentoring credentials is recruited from several Departments and Institutes within the School of Medicine, including the Departments of Medicine, Pediatrics, Surgery, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Microbiology & Immunology, Epidemiology & Public Health, and the Institute for Genome Sciences. This program offers the opportunity for Basic or Clinical Research training in three focused areas of investigation. Commitment to a minimum of two years of research training is required and trainees in the Clinical & Translational Science track are expected to pursue coursework leading to advanced degrees (MS, MPH) or to enroll in the novel PhD Program for Clinicians.
