Applications are invited from M.D. and Ph.D. fellows for positions in the Multidisciplinary K12 Urologic Career Development Program at Baylor College of Medicine. The program, supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), is designed to prepare physicians and basic scientists for careers as independent investigators in the area of translational urologic research and specifically to develop expertise in the following areas:
- Clinical and pathological aspects of urologic diseases
- Outcomes research
- Management of both basic research and clinical studies and mastery of research tools used in cellular and molecular biology
Since the goal of the program is to produce independently funded urologists, pathologists, gynecologists, radiologists, endocrinologists, psychologists, and basic research scientists, our scholars are expected to spend two years in a laboratory engaged in full-time research. After deciding, with the aid of Drs. Dolores J. Lamb and Timothy B. Boone, on a mentor and research area of focus, scholars will be required to commit at least 75 percent of their time to research and their research career development.
