Dr. Ira BernsteinWelcome

Thank you for your interest in the Women’s Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) program in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Vermont, College of Medicine. Our goal is to provide the background, training and experience required for developing an independent career in research and academic medicine. We were awarded a Women's Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) Grant in September of 2009. The WRHR Grant is a K12 physician-scientist training grant supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the NIH Office of Research in Women’s Health (ORWH). We seek clinically and academically excellent candidates who have completed an approved residency in obstetrics and gynecology or fellowship training in a relevant subspecialty area. Desired applicants must demonstrate an aptitude for academic medicine, a dedication to research, and a commitment to women’s health. Applications from women and people from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged. Once accepted into the program, each WRHR Scholar will serve as an Instructor in the University of Vermont College of Medicine. Salary will be competitive with other junior faculty mentored-research positions. Patient care activities will be based at The University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, Vermont. We are currently reviewing applications from interested physicians. If you would like any additional information, or speak to someone about the program, please contact Carol Gross, our WRHR Administrator (802-656-1209).

With best wishes,

Ira Bernstein, M.D.
John Van Sicklen Maeck Professor and Chairman, Obstetrics and Gynecology
