Program Description:

The M.D./Ph.D. Program of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University was established in 1983 to offer exceptionally talented individuals the opportunity to undertake a physician-scientist training program tailored to their specific research interests. Through this program, students who have a clearly defined interest in specialized medical research can combine the curriculum of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine with any number of graduate programs in basic sciences or engineering at either the University of Pittsburgh or Carnegie Mellon University. Over a period of six or seven years, these individuals meet the degree requirements of both a graduate school and the medical school. The two Universities are adjacent to one another in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
