Dr. JP Yu New Associate Director of UW Medical Scientist Training Program

Posted on Aug 7, 2017

Dr. JP Yu, an assistant professor in the Department of Radiology, has recently been appointed one of the associate directors of the University of Wisconsin Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). The MSTP trains participants in scientific research as well as clinical medicine and awards a combined MD/PhD degree. A version of the program began in 1986 with one to four students receiving dual degrees each year before the program was awarded a National Institutes of Health grant in 1997 specifically for Medical Scientist Training Programs around the country. The program has grown to now have 8 to 10 students graduating each year and a current total program size of 80. Students in the program benefit from resources in both the School of Medicine and Public Health and the UW Graduate School while working on translational research.

Yu is himself a graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Medical Science Training Program and has previously served on the UW MSTP Admissions Subcommittee. Dr. Scott Reeder, a professor in the Department of Radiology, was previously an associate director of the program.
