Robert Schonberger - It is a great honor to serve as the Director of our NIH-funded T32, Research Scholars Program (RSP), and Clinical Scientist Track (CST) which together endeavor to support the educational and research missions of the Department of Anesthesiology by offering a strong research pipeline for diverse trainees with a variety of research backgrounds.
While the CST program is an ACGME-approved part of many anesthesiology residencies, the RSP/T32 pathway is relatively unique to Yale and provides a flexible pathway available for selected resident applicants who have demonstrated a strong interest in pursuing research as part of their future career. The RSP program integrates into the clinical residency years and ideally serves as a feeder program into the T32 research training grant following the conclusion of residency (see figure above at right).
Both the RSP and T32 date back to 2009 when Drs. Niklason and Hines, recognizing the transformational power of an internal pathway to support early-career physician-scientists, developed these programs for the long-term growth of the Department’s research footprint. With the help of T32 Associate Director Helene Benveniste and a diverse group of T32 PIs across the university, these programs have supported multiple investigators who have since transitioned into K-level and R01 funded programs of research.
