MD/PhD Program

Our MD/PhD program prepares candidates to excel in both the laboratory and the clinic.

At NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, we prepare MD/PhD candidates who seek to move beyond the boundaries separating scientific research and clinical practice. Through our Medical Scientist Training Program, one of 49 programs in the United States recognized by the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of General Medical Sciences, our rigorous dual MD/PhD curriculum merges the fundamentals of scientific inquiry with clinical insight and experience.

Under the guidance of our training faculty, our graduates are poised to assume leadership positions in academic medicine and biomedical research. Learn more by requesting our MD/PhD program eBook.
