Biomedical Sciences M.D./Ph.D. Requirements
Through the cooperation of the School of Graduate Studies and the School of Medicine & Health Sciences, students may concurrently pursue the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Biomedical Sciences and the Doctor of Medicine degree. The minimum time required to complete the joint program is six years of full-time academic study.
Students interested in the joint M.D./Ph.D. program should first obtain admission to the School of Medicine & Health Sciences M.D. program, through the normal application and selection process. Once admitted, the student is eligible to apply for admission to the Ph.D. program, but must do so not later than the end of the first year of Medical School.
