Subspecialty Tracks

During the second half of your training (~15 months), you will choose a subspecialty track. Along with your faculty mentor, who will guide you to have the most meaningful and productive experience possible, you will design your own curriculum based on personal career plans and interests. Your customized track curriculum must be approved by the Institute Education Committee.
