Admissions Process for the MD/PhD Degree

The MD/PhD Program seeks to provide highly motivated and unusually qualified students with an integrated clinical and basic biomedical training program leading to both an MD and a PhD degree. The program's goal is to prepare graduates with the skills needed to function independently in both clinical and basic research environments. The first and last two year periods of the program contain the medical curriculum; the intervening three or four years are devoted to graduate study in selected departments of the College of Medicine under the auspices of the College of Graduate Health Sciences. Students must be accepted to the College of Medicine to be considered for admission to the MD/PhD Program.
