Postdoctoral Training in the Biomedical Sciences: An Evaluation of NIGMS [National Institute of General Medical Sciences] Postdoctoral Traineeship and Fellowship Programs.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC.
Since 1958, the NIGMS has engaged in and promoted a program of postdoctoral training with two general goals: To enlarge and improve the pool of manpower available for biomedical research; and to provide for advanced training of researchers in the nation's graduate and medical schools. Conclusions regarding the effectiveness of postdoctoral training include: The post-M.D. program must be retained; post-Ph. D.s must continue to be supported; and a balanced program of support, including fellowships, traineeships, individual research grants, and institutional grants is essential to the nation's continued health.
