MD/PHD students are supported with a waiver of tuition and an annual stipend for the duration of their time in both the MD and PHD program. Students are also provided with health, dental and disability insurance for themselves. The stipend is awarded to students who matriculate into the program. An internal transfer does not receive the stipend, only tuition waivers and payment of fees, until they begin graduate school.
