Opportunities to Perform NIH T32-funded Surgical Research at Johns Hopkins University

Location: Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Department of Surgery, Baltimore, Maryland

The Johns Hopkins Department of Surgery has opportunities for surgical residents to pursue NIH funded basic science, translational or health services research training, starting July 1, 2019. Topics available for study include all aspects of gastrointestinal surgery, including pediatric and colorectal surgery, under the NIDDK T32 Training Grant in Gastrointestinal Research.

This NIDDK T32 Training Grant seeks to train general surgery residents in GI surgical research, including basic science, clinical outcomes, and clinical trials. Trainees have the option of pursuing a Master’s degree or PhD in clinical sciences through the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. No specific training in research is required, and we welcome residents from outside of Hopkins to apply to this long-standing GI research training program.

For additional information, and to seek an application package, please contact Dr. David Hackam via email: dhackam1@jhmi.edu. Please note “NIH T32 Inquiry” in the subject line of your email.

We look forward to hearing from you.
