Enrichment Activities

Trainees in the University of Iowa Physician Scientist Training Pathway (PSTP) are invited to participate in several career enrichment programs directed toward the physician-scientist. Through these activities, the PSTP trainee will become a member of the large community of physician-scientists at the University of Iowa.

Monthly Seminars and Events

Led by pathway participants and UI faculty members, the series features discussions related to career development, specific research projects, and keys to successful grant applications.

If you are interested to present career development, continuing education or research project(s) please contact us at pstp@uiowa.edu with the details.
