Message from the Director

The MSSM MD/PhD training program offers each student diverse opportunities in an outstanding research environment tied to translational medicine. Our program has been continuously funded through the National Institutes of Health Medical Scientist Training Program since 1977.

Our focus for the future is to enhance the integration of the clinical and research stages of the program and to nurture the development of all students, guiding them to become strong clinically, scientifically, and in caring for their local and global communities.

The MD/PhD program builds on a strong legacy of past directors, committed faculty and administrators, and extraordinary students who have made our program one of the best in the country. We are committed to making an already strong program even better.
