Postdoctoral Primary Care Research Fellowship in Madison, Wisconsin
The University of Wisconsin (UW) Primary Care Research Fellowship is recruiting new fellows to start in the summer of 2022. This post-doctoral research fellowship is administratively housed within the UW Dept. of Family Medicine and Community Health and led by faculty from this department as well as from General Internal Medicine and also General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. The fellowship has been continuously funded by the Health Resources and Service Administration as a T32 for over 20 years, and typically supports 2 years of research career training.
Research project completion, published papers, and grant proposals are the main goals for fellows. The fellowship is open to physicians or PhD-level health professionals aiming for research-centered careers who could benefit from 2 years of protected time, mentorship and research support. Areas of scholarly focus should be related to primary care, but are otherwise not restricted. We especially like fellows aiming for NIH funding, and have trained several who have received K-grants, R-grants, or other prestigious awards.
The Department of Family Medicine and Community Health and the School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
Successful candidates must have a medical (MD, DO), doctoral (PhD), or other terminal degree at the start of their appointment.
