While specific course/credit requirements differ between graduate programs, most will allow MD/PhD students to waive some coursework to accelerate time to dissertation completion.
If MSTP students are interested in joining a graduate program that does not currently have an MD/PhD student agreement, one will need to be crafted by MSTP administration and the desired graduate program prior to enrolling in any graduate school coursework.
Graduate Programs with current MSTP student agreements:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Cancer Biology
- Clinical Translational Sciences
- Cellular & Molecular Medicine
- Optical Sciences
- Medical Pharmacology
- Physiological Sciences
- Drug Discovery
- Public Health (under negotiations)
