MD/PhD Joint Degree

Doctor of Medicine and Doctor of Philosophy in Epidemiology

The joint PhD/MD program is a unique arrangement between the Department of Epidemiology and the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), a collaboration between the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. The program provides the opportunity for students to undertake a physician-scientist training program tailored to specific research interests, provided by the wide range of research that primary and secondary epidemiology faculty are involved in within Pitt Public Health and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

Students in this program begin by completing two years of the MD degree in the School of Medicine, and then study at Pitt Public Health for three years to complete the PhD program. Students then return to the School of Medicine to finish the last two years of medical training.
