The mission of our MSTP is to train a diverse and creative cadre of physician-scientists who will become leaders in their chosen fields of research, develop new knowledge and translate it to enhance clinical practice.
This training will serve the nation by developing physician-scientists who can accelerate the progress of biomedical research from the laboratory to the direct benefit of patients.
The MD is combined with a PhD program offered by the Graduate Program in Life Sciences (GPILS)
- Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
- Bioengineering (at UMCP)
- Epidemiology and Human Genetics
- Molecular Microbiology & Immunology
- Molecular Medicine
