Reproductive Scientist Development Program
The Reproductive Scientist Development Program (RSDP) provides two years of training for obstetrician-gynecologists pursuing academic careers in fundamental biomedical science. Applicants to this program typically are ob/gyn fellows or ob/gyn residents nearing the completion of their residency.
To apply, candidates must first obtain a commitment of a faculty position by a sponsoring department with a minimum of 75% protected time for research for the first three faculty years following training.
The program is supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in collaboration with private agencies, professional societies, foundations, and private industry.
The RSDP program and its sponsors are committed to developing a new generation of scientists who will advance discoveries in biomedical science and apply them to the clinical practice of obstetrics and gynecology.
