Because of the increasing diversity of the United States population, there is a national need for physician-investigators who are members of under-represented minority groups and other disadvantaged groups. The Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program therefore encourages applications from students who are members of under-represented minority groups, from disadvantaged backgrounds or who are disabled. (We recognize that some applicants may belong to more than one of these categories.)
Successful applicants must satisfy the requirements of both the medical and the graduate components of the Program, and all matriculants must satisfy the requirements in the Medical College's Technical Standards policy.
After initial screening, selected candidates will be invited to attend one of the Program's two interview days, where they will meet selected faculty within the Program.
