This five—year dual degree program is designed for students who wish to prepare for careers in basic or clinical research at academic medical centers. The core components of this degree are three to six graduate courses in a specific track chosen by the student based on his or her interest, six graded credits of medical school coursework, a common seminar series, training in scientific integrity, and a full—year research project culminating in a written report and examination by faculty. Tracks include biochemistry, clinical investigation, epidemiology, health services research, nutrition, pathology, and physiology and biotechnology. Each track has specific course requirements. There is no tuition charge for the research year, and a stipend is provided.
