The MSTP Program works closely with the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Office of Admissions to recruit and matriculate outstanding aspiring physician scientists. The combined dual degree MD/PhD Program gives full consideration to all applicants for admission and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, creed, national origin, age, disability or sexual orientation.
Our Advisory Committee selects applicants who demonstrate the ability to undergo the rigorous research training in the basic sciences, resulting in a PhD, complemented by inter-related clinical training that leads to a M.D. degree. Graduates of our program can combine the medical needs of society with scientific opportunities in an efficient manner to address important health concerns. Finally, this selection process furthers our mission to graduate the future leaders in medical research in medical schools and other research institutes.
