MD/PhD Dual Degree Program


The MD/PhD Program is jointly sponsored by the School of Medicine and the Graduate School of Biomedical Science. Applicants should be committed to becoming physician-scientists and conduct rigorous, hypothesis-driven laboratory or population-based research into some of the most vexing biomedical problems we face.


The dual degree program is a seven-year program in which students complete two years of medical school, spend three years on the PhD dissertation research and then complete the final two years of medical school.


Tuition reimbursement is provided for all years in the program. In addition, a yearly stipend of $21,000 plus fringe benefits will be provided.
