Educational Opportunities for Medical Students

Gyongyi Szabo, MD, PhDMD/PhD Program

The goal of the MD/PhD Program is to provide highly motivated students the opportunities to develop skill and experience in biomedical investigation and the practice of medicine. This is a rigorous and challenging program, and upon success completion the student is awarded both the PhD in Biomedical Sciences and the MD. Our goal is to train physician-scientists who will make significant contributions to health care and who will become the leaders of academic medicine.
