Graduate School-Newark

M.D./Ph.D. Program

The M.D./Ph.D. program is a 7-year partnership program leading to the M.D. from the New Jersey Medical School - University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Newark, and the Ph.D. from Rutgers-The State University of NJ -Campus at Newark. Typically, for the first two years students take basic biomedical courses at NJMS, perform research at Rutgers-Newark during those summers, then enter the Ph.D. program with a reduced course load and intensive research activity at Rutgers-Newark for the next three years, at the successful conclusion of which they receive the Ph.D. degree. Students then return to NJMS for two years of clinical training, at the successful conclusion of which they receive the M.D. degree.

Students apply to both institutions simultaneously and, if accepted and progress satisfactorily, are provided with full waiver of tuition for the entire 7 years plus annual salary/stipend support at levels commensurate with the graduate student salary scale of both institutions. Minority students are encouraged to apply.
