Welcome to the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School-Princeton University MD/PhD Program
Research in medical and biological science relies more on interdisciplinary thought than ever before. The prevalence of team-oriented, collaborative research requires that investigators have the capacity to integrate both the clinical and basic science aspects of medicine. With rapid growth in the body of knowledge and technological sophistication comes the demand that future physician scientists receive in-depth training within and across conventional disciplines in order to excel in basic, translational, and clinical research.
Our program draws on the diverse strengths and resources of premier private and public research institutions and healthcare centers in central New Jersey to facilitate a unique academic environment in which students can hone and integrate their clinical and research acumen.
Drawing on experiences in both clinical medicine and basic research, past and present students in our program have investigated the pathologic mechanisms underlying human disease in diverse fields including:
- Genetic disease basis
- Biomedical engineering
- Drug design
- Infectious disease
In addition to clinical and basic-science proficiency, the RWJMS program includes opportunities for professional development, global health work, and the study of health policy and management. Our goal is to ensure that graduates of the MD/PhD program at RWJMS are uniquely prepared to become leaders in biomedical research, academic medicine, and prevention of disease.
