This program is one of several national programs funded by a Medical Scientist Training Program grant from the National Institutes of Health. The program combines—in about eight years—coursework, fundamental biomedical research, and clinical training culminating in a dissertation, a PhD degree, and an MD degree. Students accepted into the program receive a yearly stipend in addition to tuition and fees paid for by the program throughout the training period. The program trains future academic physician-scientists.
