Duke provides a variety of research intensive fellowship programs including specific T32 training programs and institution-wide T32 training programs. We recommend contacting the Program PI regarding eligibility for a given T32 training program.
CTSA TL1 Physician Research Fellowship Program
This is a 2-year training program to provide 2 years of funded time to support the research training of physician-scientists. Allphysician trainees are eligible, but candidates interested in broadening their previous training to include a new category of research methodology (e.g., applicants with a bench science background looking to gain training in translational or clinical research, or vice versa) are encouraged to apply. Applicants interested in data science methodology are particularly encouraged to apply.
Durham Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care
The Division of General Internal Medicine collaboration with the Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care in the Durham VA Medical Center offers a training fellowship to perform high-quality, mentored health services research. Projects often include: analysis of existing data, either from health services clinical trials performed by investigators in the Center or from large administrative VA databases; evidence syntheses, including meta-analyses; pilot tests of interventions; and/or brief, focused studies that collect qualitative or quantitative primary data from patients or physicians.
Global Health Pathway
The Global Health Pathway delivers tailored postgraduate training for residents and fellows to integrate specialty-specific research opportunities, masters-level didactic training, and close mentorship to develop careers in global health.

Other Resources Available to Fellows and Residents:
Pediatric Scientist Development Program (PSDP)
The Pediatric Scientist Development Program (PSDP) provides intensive training in research relevant to specialty areas of pediatrics. The goal is to prepare entry-level faculty for research careers in academic pediatrics. Physicians presently in pediatric training programs who wish to train in basic, translational, clinical, or health services research with an established investigator/mentor are encouraged to apply. A commitment to an investigative academic career is essential.
Candidates completing the PSDP are eligible for sub-specialty boards because PSDP training typically takes place after the completion of the clinical fellowship year(s). Support includes salary, fringe benefits, and research training expenses. The active involvement and support of Pediatric Department Chairs in the nomination/application process, and career development of PSDP scholars, are essential to the program’s success.
