THE POWER OF SCIENCE

MEETS THE ART OF MEDICINE

The UAB Heersink SOM MSTP provides a truly integrated MD-PhD training program for aspiring physician scientists. During the first 2-years of the program, our students take both a selection of medical school and graduate school courses concurrently. This approach allows our students to get a head start on their graduate courses, while also getting to know both their fellow MD and PhD classmates. Additionally, our MD-PhD students are highly involved in multiple aspects of the program. This includes acting as student advisors to the MSTP Directors, organizing the collaborative Annual Southeastern MD-PhD Symposium, advocating for representation, diversity, and inclusion in medicine and science, and planning applicant interviews.
