Clinician-Scientist Training Program (CSTP) research residency track

The USC Otolaryngology Clinician-Scientist Training Program is a 7-year track which begins with a two-year research block during the first two years of residency training, with additional research time throughout the following five years of clinical residency training. This track gives residents the opportunity to build a foundation of meaningful research experiences with simultaneous clinical activity to train academic surgeon scientists who are capable of extending the reach of medicine. This track is supported by an R25 grant.

During the first two years, the CSTP resident will spend 80% of their time performing research in the lab of their PI mentor and 20% of their time in clinical training in the OR and clinic at the Keck Medical Center.
