Training Outcomes (as of October 2019)
Of the 57 students who received training from the program during the past 15 grant years, 16 are presently in various stages of pre-doctoral training while 41 have graduated either with a PhD (38) or MS (3) degree. Among the graduates, 9 (22%) are receiving post-doctoral training in academia, 3 (7%) have progressed to tenure-line faculty positions in academia, 8 (20%) are in industrial positions in various capacities, 3 (7%) are in teaching positions in academia, 5 (12%) are in medical school/residency, 7 (17%) are in other professions (e.g., grants officer, journal editor, technology transfer officer), 3 (7%) graduated with a Masters degree, and the status of 2 (5%) trainees are presently unknown, as the program has been unable to establish contact with these students (however, both students had secured post-doctoral positions in academia following graduation). The time-to-degree (TTD) statistic for trainees who graduated during the past 10 years is 6.5 years.
