Millennium PhD Admissions Requirements

Admission to the MPP is limited to physicians already affiliated with UMass Medical School and who have already identified a mentor and department willing to cover their part of the total stipend. The MPP encourages applications from UMMS physicians with an MD or equivalent degree and UMMS graduate and undergraduate medical students who are officially enrolled in any of the clinical clerkship, residency and/or fellowship programs at UMMS, or who have completed such clinical training. Medical students applying for MPP must receive their MD before starting MPP training. Candidates will be reviewed and selected for participation in the program by the MPP Advisory Board.

Typical MPP candidates are physicians in subspecialty fellowship programs who are doing research and contemplating KO8 applications. Other typical candidates are medical residents enrolled in the research track.

Application for Admission

Interested candidates should contact the Millennium PhD Program Coordinator, Hardy Kornfeld.
