Medical Scientist Training Program

The University of Michigan Medical Scientist Training Program was established to facilitate the combined M.D./Ph.D. degree program. The MSTP goal is to train physician scientists primarily for careers in academic medicine with a focus on basic biomedical research. A traditional academic pathway for an MSTP fellow is to begin with the first and second year of medical school, transition to and complete their graduate studies, and then return to finish the core clerkships and electives of the third and fourth years of their medical training.

The MSTP Office is responsible for the recruitment and selection of prospective students, as well as the administrative and academic support to current MSTP fellows. Support to fellows includes providing infrastructure and campus resources to both student and curriculum services at the University of Michigan Medical School and Rackham Graduate Programs (e.g., financial aid, health insurance, curriculum policies and procedures, etc.).
