MD/PhD Medical Scientist Training


The Medical Scientist Training Program (M.D./PhD) is partially supported by a National Institutes of Health training grant and the Colleges of Medicine and Graduate Studies. The program is designed to facilitate the development of superior students into individuals who can provide the innovative leadership required by the medical sciences. The program provides the opportunity to obtain both the M.D. and Ph.D. degrees. Accordingly, the program seeks to integrate the best qualities of the medical and graduate programs to allow outstanding training in both clinical and research areas.The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) Steering Committee consists of members drawn from both basic and clinical sciences departments. The program director and committee are responsible for the operation of the program. The primary purpose of such an administrative structure is to guide the students in the program toward the highest quality of intellectual curiosity and the attendant accomplishment of academic excellence.
