By carefully selecting training faculty, the Medical Scientist Training Program is able to provide the best possible research experience that propels students toward success as physician scientists and physician engineers. Training faculty are chosen amongst the graduate faculty at IU School of Medicine and the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue. Faculty are members of both basic science and clinical departments and represent areas of strengths amid both institutions.
Criteria for these faculty include a track record in training pre-doctoral PhD or MD-PhD students, evidence of high-quality research as judged by peer-reviewed publications, and extramural peer reviewed funding. Learn more about faculty research.
