Is the MD/PhD program for me?

The MD/PhD program is designed for a limited number of students who are strongly motivated toward a career as a physician scientist. An MD/PhD graduate's medical perspective along with their intensive research training can help advance basic, clinical and translational discoveries from bench to bedside.

If you're interested in Drexel's MD/PhD program please review the program requirements that provide more detail on the criteria students must meet.
