M.D./Ph.D. Program

Format: Campus

Program Description:

For students interested in careers in academic medicine and/or biomedical research, the MD/PhD program provides an ideal and time-efficient route to training as both a physician and a scientist. The program maximizes integration between the medical and graduate school curricula so that all requirements can be satisfied within a minimal time-frame. In recognition of the individual needs of each student, the program has a flexible design, including a special graduate program, Biomedical Sciences, specifically for MD/PhD students. Some science majors can qualify for exemption from certain medical school courses and apply that time to other areas of advanced study. In addition, the summers before entering and after the first year of medical school can be used for GSBS laboratory rotations.
