     Program Director: Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD

Stanford University residents and fellows interested in combining clinical training with advanced research training are invited to apply to the Advanced Residency Training at Stanford (ARTS) Program. ARTS offers the opportunity to obtain a PhD degree during or upon completion of residency or clinical fellowship. The program begins with approximately 12 – 48 months clinical training, followed by research training in a graduate program in the School of Medicine, Engineering or Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University.

Residents and fellows admitted to the program complete clinical training toward board certification in internal medicine, its subspecialties (cardiovascular medicine, hematology, immunology and rheumatology, infectious diseases, nephrology, oncology, pulmonary and critical care medicine), surgical disciplines (neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, urology), or non-surgical disciplines (neurology, pathology, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiation oncology, radiology).

Research in Residency : Toolkit for Clinical Research

Stanford 2009-10

The Research in Residency Program begins this year as a requirement and will encourage residents to specifically reflect upon their core career interests.   These include 

A condition (e.g. asthma, developmental delay)

A population (e.g. adolescents, underserved population)

A role (e.g. community advocate, public policy work, basic science, health services or clinical researcher)

For the current PGY2’s and 3’s, this project is being strongly encouraged but not required.  The current StAT program has long made similar requirements part and parcel of the Advocacy program at Stanford.  This expands and builds on that program. We expect the residents will pose a health-related question and develop it into a project (PGY-1); obtain IRB approval, if needed, and gather all data (PGY-2); and analyze that data and present their findings to the department (PGY-3) as a poster or platform presentation.  The department is planning to begin to host a research day in the winter (likely Feb) of 2010 where these posters etc will be discussed. A research award is planned as well. Submission to a national platform is encouraged but not required.

 

Faculty Roles:  The class advisor (for the current PGY-1’s: Laura Bachrach) will mentor and ‘match make’ throughout the first year of residency until a “Principal Investigator” is identified. The Principal Investigator(s) will take primary responsibility for helping to develop the resident’s project and assure its feasibility and integrity and must give approval before any oral or written presentations are given inside and outside the University.  The time commitment for this guidance will certainly vary quite a bit, depending on the residents and the project.

Many Stanford faculty want to share their ongoing research interests with you and can offer you an exciting opportunity to explore an area of pediatrics under their expert guidance. Take a look at a sample of what is possible!    Faculty Research Roster
