The University of Minnesota's Twin Cities campus is home to dynamic research in basic and clinical sciences, biomedical engineering, public health, and health care policy that attracts a diverse group of faculty and researchers from around the world. Faculty are nationally recognized for educational leadership, mentorship, and support in scholarship and research. The Medical School is dedicated to providing a high-quality education for trainees of all backgrounds.

For applicants committed to rigorous research training in clinical and basic investigation, the Physician-Scientist Training Program (PSTP) offers a continuous training experience, from internship through fellowship.

The program is individualized to match personal career plans, including opportunities to obtain an advanced degree (MPH, MS, or PhD) in one of the University's outstanding graduate programs in the Medical School, College of Biological Sciences, College of Science and Engineering, or School of Public Health. The University's collaborative approach to research, exemplified by the interdisciplinary Biomedical Discovery District, provides a broad range opportunities in medical school research centers (e.g., Clinical & Translational Science Institute, Lillehei Heart Center, Masonic Cancer Center et al.)

The PSTP curriculum is based on and meets requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Research Pathway.
