M.D./Ph.D. Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience
About the Program
The M.D./Ph.D. Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience requires students to complete 18.5 credits in core neuroscience courses, compared to the 34 credits required for Ph.D. students. The remaining credits will be absorbed from medical coursework.
The requirement for 10.5 electives and the following courses are waived for M.D./Ph.D. students: NSCI 543: Organization of the Nervous System (for Medical School Neuroscience) and NSCI533: Neurobiology of Disease (for Medical School Neuroscience). Students may elect to take electives if they wish.
Send a Post-Rotation Form to the head of the Student Advisory Committee (SAC) for 1st rotation
MD/PhD students enrolled in School of Medicine (SOM) for M2.
M.D./Ph.D. students will be officially enrolled in graduate school. However, they are not expected to actually begin their rotation until they have taken the USMLE STEP I board exam. M.D./Ph.D. students are required to take STEP I by the same deadline as students in the regular M.D. program.
