Physician Scientist Residency Training Awards

The Physician Scientist Residency Training Award (PSRTA) is the newest addition to the Urology Care Foundation’s mentored grants portfolio and was made possible thanks to an endowed partnership with Dornier MedTech. 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 was first competed to academic institutions to determine which urology residency programs could provide the necessary training and support to serve as a PSRTA Program Site. The second phase of the competition is then opened to medical students to apply for an available residency slot at one of these institutions as a PSRTA Trainee. One PSRTA Trainee slot is available each competition cycle.

Check in July for details on the 2023 program site competition. Please contact with any questions.
