ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The MD/PhD Program was established to educate outstanding, dedicated, military officers as independent physician-scientists to carry out both clinical investigations and biomedical research in the basic sciences. We combine a rigorous basic science graduate curriculum with outstanding clinical training, and special integrated MD/PhD activities that qualify students for careers in academic medicine, biomedical and clinical research, as well as clinical practice.
