Featured Training Opportunities 2017

Cardiovascular Imaging Postdoctoral Fellowship Training (CVIS)

The program is designed to train the next generation of CV imaging investigators by exposing them to three complementary areas – clinical, engineering, and molecular imaging.The two-year training program supports fellows with an MD and/or PhD background. 


Visit the Cardiovascular Imaging Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program

The Biomedical Informatics (BMI) Training Program

The BMI training program encompasses bioinformatics, clinical informatics, and public health informatics.

Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS)

The goals of SMIS are to train postdoctoral fellows through a diverse group of over 40 basic science and clinical faculty mentors representing 8 program areas, incorporating formal courses in molecular imaging, molecular pharmacology, cancer biology, cancer immunology, virology, and gene therapy, with a clinical component including hematology/oncology rounds.


1. Candidate must have a PhD or MD degree

2. Candidate must be either a US citizen, a non-citizen national, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence and possess an Alien Registration Card (1-151 or 1-551) or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident.


Visit the Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars Training Grant

The Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) was established as an inter-disciplinary program to bring together scientists and physicians who share a common interest in developing and using state-of-the-art imaging technology and developing molecular imaging assays for studying intact biological systems. Areas of active investigation are cancer research, microbiology/immunology, developmental biology and pharmacology.

The Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) Program

The Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) Program, funded by the National Cancer Institute, aims to train the next generation of researchers in the development and clinical application of advanced techniques for cancer imaging. This two-year Training Program accepts only US citizens or permanent residents and will help develop a US workforce to make progress in the battle against cancer.
