All eligible applicants who are admitted to the MD-PhD Program are considered for funding under the Medical Scientist Training Program. Approximately 8-12 MD-PhD students matriculate each year and receive the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) award. This program, supported by the National Institutes of Health, provides full tuition, stipend, and insurance for students. Due to federal restrictions, only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for MSTP funding.
For the academic year 2017-2018, the annual stipend for students in the MD track of their training (Medical School Years I & II) is $28,376. The stipend for students entering the graduate track of their training in 2017-2018 is $31,936. Health and dental insurance are covered for students during their training.
