Considering becoming a physician scientist? The MD-PhD section of the AAMC website has many resources that can help guide you through the process. Highlights include:
- Science magazine published this article, which provides answers to commonly asked questions, such as what admissions committees look for in an application and what factors to consider when selecting a program.
- The Medical Science Training Program (MSTP) is an initiative by one of the NIH's institutes. MSTP provides funding to about one-third of MD/PhD programs. Students admitted to MSTP receive full tuition, stipend, and insurance. U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible.
- MD/PhDs and MD/PhD candidates who are tutors in the Houses are great resources for learning more about the MD/PhD path. Also, use the Alumni Directory to find alumni who have MD/PhDs.
