SCIENCE MEETS MEDICINE

MSTP provides a truly integrated training program, in which students take both a selection of medical school and graduate school courses concurrently within their first 2 years in the program. This allows our students to get a head start on their graduate courses, while also getting to know both their fellow MD and PhD classmates. Our MD-PhD students are highly involved in multiple aspects of the program, including being student advisors to the MSTP Directors, organizing our new Southeastern MD-PhD Symposium, and planning the annual MSTP retreat.
