MD-PhD in Biomedical Informatics

The MD-PhD curriculum includes 1.5 years devoted to the basic science courses of the Medical School. The MD is conferred by the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons. The PhD is conferred by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Students do two clinical rotations, followed by 3 or 4 years of graduate study, which is supplemented by an ongoing clinical tutorial. After their thesis defense, students have a final 11-month major clinical year. Students typically complete both degrees in 7 years, with some students taking 8 years and a rare student finishing in 6 years.
