MD/PhD Student Handbook

2018 Retreat Photo


This handbook presents information germane to MD/PhD students at the University of Rochester.  It is intended as a guide for curriculum, a resource for transition periods, and a listing of committees, students and advisors who actively participate in the program.  New to this edition are revised guidelines for the use of training funds, as well as changes to Student Council positions.  As students in the MD/PhD Program, you are also expected to keep yourselves apprised of your responsibilities as outlined in the School of Medicine Student Handbook We fully anticipate as the program grows and new issues arise that some of these contents will be modified and new materials incorporated. Please help us in this process by providing feedback about the contents. Thanks in advance for your contributions to this ongoing process.
