Trainees in the in the Medical Imaging Training Program are selected from from the incoming group of medical imaging students. The prospective students are reviewed by the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee balances requests from participating faculty with the strengths of the students and with their indicated interest in imaging.
There are two types of MITP Trainees: Affiliated Scholars and Fellows.
Predoctoral graduate students participate in the two-year Medical Imaging Training Program by attending the MITP Visionary Speaker seminars and participating in the MITP’s annual Imaging Fair. Affiliated Scholars are also eligible to take courses that are designed specifically for the Medical Imaging Training Program.
An NIBIB fellowship grant through the NIH offers stipends and tuition to a limited number of MITP Trainees. Students awarded with the NIH fellowships are funded for two of their first three years of graduate studies. All applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to be considered for the NIH fellowship. Duke University's graduate school also offers a two-year fellowship to one international student.
