The Department of Neurosciences participates in PhD training for MD PhD candidates in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). To apply to the program, prospective students may apply through the American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®) by designating themselves MD PhD applicants. They will have two additional essays to complete highlighting their research interests and experience, and the reason they wish to pursue the combined degree.
The Department of Neurosciences has been training dual degree candidates since its inception at CWRU, and we continue to be committed to educating the next generation of physician scientists. To learn more about the MD PhD Program, please visit:
