Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)

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) in the following areas: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Epidemiology and Human Genetics, Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, Molecular Medicine, Neuroscience and Bioengineering (at UMCP).
