Master's Degree and PhD Programs

NYU School of Medicine encourages intellectual aspiration in fields that intersect with medicine and supports students who choose to pursue additional training in their areas of particular interest. To that end, the school offers PhD and multiple Master's Degree programs, and is in the process of developing several more. These programs offer medical students the opportunity to obtain a graduate degree along with their M.D. degree, and offer several potential advantages over pursuing the two degrees separately.

Graduate Degree (PhD) Programs

The NYU Sackler Institute offers a PhD program with interdisciplinary training in the basic medical sciences: Cellular and Molecular Biology, Computational Biology, Developmental Genetics, Medical and Molecular Parasitology, Microbiology, Molecular Oncology and Immunology, Molecular Pharmacology, Neuroscience and Physiology, or Structural Biology.
