Criteria

Fellowships are available for U.S. citizens or permanent residents who by the time of appointment will hold an MD or a PhD degree (or equivalent). Postdoctoral fellowships are intended for early career training and in general applicants must have received their doctoral degree within six years (MD) or three years (PhD) prior to the planned training start date. Physician applicants generally have completed residency in internal medicine, preventive medicine, pediatrics, or psychiatry, or may be concurrently enrolled in a clinical fellowship at Stanford.

The SPRC Fellowship does not include clinical training and specifically is not a cardiology subspecialty program.   For specific interests of our faculty, please see "Research interests".

The length of training is two years. The training program can also provide tuition support for completing a Masters degree in epidemiology, clinical research methods, or public health (at the University of California, Berkeley).

Please note: According to U.S. policy, any individual appointed to this training grant must be a citizen or a non-citizen national of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (i.e., in possession of the Alien Registration Receipt Card I-551 or I-151) at the time of appointment. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible.

Monthly Career Development Roundtables provide for exchange between fellows and faculty on such issues as preparing curriculum vitae, writing scientific papers, and job hunting.
