MD/PhD Scholars Program

Students who want a career in medicine and research can apply to the Medical Degree/Ph.D. Scholars Program. Training begins the summer before medical school where students participate in laboratory rotations to select a research mentor.

After the second year of medical school, the student begins the graduate portion of the program. This part of the program lasts about 3-4 years. After that, the student rejoins the medical class for two years of clinical training. The combine degree takes about 7-8 years.

Students will take core medical school classes (first and second years) in the new state-of-the-art Michael F. Sorrell Center building - the home of the College of Medicine. Research and lab activities will take place in the new high-tech Durham Research Center towers.
