|Dr. Betty Diamond on the MD/PhD Program|
Students enrolled in the MD/PhD program complete the MD curriculum as well as three longitudinal seminar courses in Critical Readings, Research Methodologies, and Bioinformatics. They also conduct significant, original scholarly research that culminates in peer-reviewed publication and interact with students in the PhD and Elmezzi graduate programs.
MD/PhD students receive their PhD degree in The Molecular Basis of Medicine. The emphasis of this program is to train individuals to pursue scholarly activity in biomedical, translational and clinical research with the goal of transforming and improving medical care. The unique aspects of this program are the emphasis on the study of human disease and on application of that study to clinical practice.
