MD-PHD Program

The purpose of the MD-PhD combined-degrees 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 & research and the executive dean of the school of medicine, with assistance from their MD-PhD advisory committee. On average, students spend about 6-7 years in the program; the variable period usually depends on the time needed to complete their research and dissertation.
