MD-PhD Physician Scientist Training Program
The purpose of the MD-PhD Physician Scientist Training Program at the University of Kansas Medical Center is to prepare highly qualified and motivated post-baccalaureate students for careers as physician scientists in academic medicine and biomedical research. The program is conducted under the auspices of the dean of graduate studies and research and the executive dean of the school of medicine, with assistance from their MD-PhD advisory committee. On average, students spend about 7-8 years in the program; the variable period usually depends on the time needed to complete their research and dissertation.
