MD/PhD Program Overview
About the Program
The MD/PhD program at the Wayne State University School of Medicine is aimed at a few highly motivated individuals. Our program combines outstanding scientific training with state-of-the-art clinical medicine to train individuals as physician-scientists, excelling in careers in research and education. Our program is uniquely structured to integrate clinical and scientific experiences through all years of training.
Recognizing that the goal of MD/PhD graduates is to pursue careers as clinician-scientists, the mission of the Wayne State University’s MD/PhD program is to provide a truly integrated clinical and scientific training experience to our students through all years of the MD/PhD program. Our program is designed to meet the individual needs of each student.
A new component of our program is the offering of an optional Graduate Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science for MD/PhD students.
