MD/PhD Program

MD/PhD candidates will take their MD training at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the PhD training at one of the two collaborating institutions: Rutgers University, and Princeton University. Typically students do laboratory rotations during the summers prior to starting and between the first and second year of medical school. Students identify a faculty mentor and begin research and graduate coursework full time after the second year of medical school. Students who chose a faculty mentor in the MGMI program follow the PhD requirements as outlined above. The remaining medical training resumes after a Ph.D. degree has been awarded.  For more details, click here MD/PhD website.
