Welcome to the Case Physician Scientist Pathway at MetroHealth Medical Center
The Department of Medicine at the MetroHealth Campus of Case Western Reserve University (CWRU)is proud to present the Physician Scientist Pathway (PSP). This program is designed to provide rigorous training to future physician investigators in base science and patient-oriented biomedical research. The program is designed to train future leaders in academic medicine. Clinical and basic science is valued equally. Applicants may, but are not required, to have a specific subspecialty interest. Upon completion of this program, trainees will be board eligible in Internal Medicine, their subspecialty of interest (if applicable), and will have received comprehensive research training needed to develop a career as an independent physician investigator. It will provide key elements of oversight, and will allow for the maximum protected research time that enables satisfactory completion of ABIM board requirements for residency and subspecialty training. The program is designed to optimize utilization of and collaboration between the rich research, clinical and training environments available at the MetroHealth Campus of Case Western Reserve University. The program will also foster expertise in “translational medicine,” thereby promoting the rapid application of scientific discoveries to diagnostic and therapeutic innovations at the bedside.
