Physician Scientist Residency Training Award
Established in 2017, the Physician Scientist Residency Training Award (PSRTA) is a program relatively rare in the field of urology but common in other medical and surgical fields. This award supports a three-year research training program embedded within urology residency. The focus of this program is to prepare young surgeon scientists to become successful research leaders and make impactful discoveries for their patients.
The award has two competition phases over a two-year period. First, academic institutions compete to determine which urology residency programs could provide the necessary training and support to serve as a PSRTA Program Site. Multiple institutions can be selected as PSRTA sites.
The second phase welcomes medical students participating in the urology match process to apply for an available residency slot at one of the selected institutions. One PSRTA Trainee slot is available each competition cycle.
The 2024 program site competition is now open!
The submission deadline has been extended: proposals are now due at 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 14, 2024.
