About the Program
The MD/PhD curriculum provides students with a longitudinal integration of basic and clinical sciences, punctuated by a period of rigorous graduate research training. The diagram below provides an outline for the major curricular components of the program. For most students it is anticipated that this program can be readily completed in 8 years, and that a proportion of students will complete the program in 7 years. Opportunities for conducting research rotations in the first years of the program, a shortened second medical school year, targeted clinical activities during graduate training, and significant flexibility in returning to medical school at the conclusion of graduate training all contribute to timely completion. Details for each phase as well as transitions between phases are summarized in the section on curriculum.
