The PSTP integrates graduate and clinical education to develop physician-scientists who practice medicine and lead basic research programs or who use their medical training to enhance research activities. Cincinnati's PSTP is a NIH supported Medical Scientist Training Program; students have the option of designing pathways through the program that integrate basic research and the study of medicine in ways that serve their individual interests and goals. Students typically complete the program (both degrees) in 7-8 years, during which time they receive full tuition remission and stipend.
