Albert Einstein College Of Medicine
Graduate Division of Biomedical Sciences
Medical Scientist Training Program (M.D./Ph.D.)
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine was one of the first institutions in the country to offer the combined M.D.-Ph.D. degree. Students seeking the combined degree are part of Einstein's Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), established in 1964 with grant support from the National Institutes of Health. Einstein's MSTP is larger than most others of its kind, enabling the program to have an administrative and academic identity; it is still small enough, however, to give it the key attribute of providing individual attention to students and of meeting their unique needs. It is one of the most established of such programs in the country and has maintained an excellent record of placing its graduates in highly desirable post-graduate training positions and in academic careers. The program is designed to train students for research and teaching careers either in preclinical or clinical areas of medical science.
