Training Program

Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) students pursue a combined M.D./Ph.D. degree and spend their first 2 years in the MD program. These students affiliate with Pharmacology to do their doctoral work near the end of the second year of medical school.  They generally substitute the medical school core academic program (IBIS) for the cell and molecular biology (C3MB)core course.
