The Office of Physician-Scientist Development (OPSD) in the Duke University School of Medicine assists trainees across the career spectrum (medical students, residents and fellows, and junior faculty) by providing information and programming on career development activities such as grant writing, mentoring, leadership development, and funding opportunities. Our office also coordinates physician-scientist training efforts across departments, centers, institutes, and related offices within School of Medicine.

Research Careers Ahead!

The Research Careers Ahead! Seminar Series aims to inspire students, trainees and junior faculty to embrace a research career. Seminars will equip participants with the knowledge and skills needed to develop a robust research program. Each seminar will provide an opportunity for professional networking with other scientists.

Basic Research Training Program

The Basic Research Training Program Seminar Series will delve into the importance of best practices and standards in laboratory-based research, discuss appropriate documentation of experiments, typical laboratory methodologies and explain the context in which they are used.  This series will also appraise research questions, identify appropriate methodologies to use, demonstrate effective use of laboratory techniques, as well as how to interpret data resulting from various techniques and processes.
