Physician-Scientist track

Our Physician-Scientist Track allows you substantial time during your residency training, including dedicated time as early as your intern year to pursue bench, translational or clinical research under the mentorship of world leaders in neurology. Combined with this expertise and WashU being the #1 NIH funded neurology department, your opportunities are limitless. We have a strong record of securing R25 funding and many of our graduates have primarily research careers, with early success in obtaining federal and private grants and progressing to independent scientists with their own lab. Our graduates are leaders in the spectrum of research from studying basic mechanisms underlying disease in cell lines and animal models all the way to health disparities and dissemination and implementation research.
