Program Information

Degrees Offered:

M.D./Ph.D. Program

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The M.D./Ph.D. Program enables students to attain both the M.D. and Ph.D. degrees over a period of six to nine years. The curriculum is flexible and students are encouraged to shape their own individualized course of study. Generally, however, students take the basic medical science courses offered for medical students during their first two years in the Program. They also begin to gain experience and insight into research during the summer between years 1 and 2, and, if convenient, before year 1. The next two to five years are spent in study and research in one of the Division's graduate programs completing the requirements for the Ph.D. degree. Two years of clinical studies follow to fulfill the requirements for the M.D. degree
