The MD / PhD Program

With a comprehensive “bench to bedside” philosophy, Einstein’s NIH-funded Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) blends MD and PhD curricula at every stage, allowing students to truly bridge the gap between medicine and science.

  • During the first two years of the program, you combine medical school and PhD coursework with unique, MSTP-specific courses and laboratory rotation.
  • The third through fifth years are dedicated to intensive PhD research while seeing patients weekly at our nearby Jacobi and Weiler hospitals’ continuity clinics.
  • Required clinical rotations complete your medical training.

Einstein’s MSTP prepares students for busy, challenging, rewarding careers as physician- scientists. Graduates of the program often go on to become faculty members at medical schools, universities and research institutes.
