Graduate Programs

MD/PhD Program

Students earning a PhD in biomedical engineering (BME) through the MD/PhD program will begin PhD training in the third year of graduate school after two years of medical school training.

The PhD/MD curriculum has been modified to account for courses taken at the medical school. All changes to the curriculum are stated in the Graduate Handbook.


Note that because the medical school training emphasizes biology and physiology, the BME PhD requirement for 11 credits of Approved Biology is waived.

For more detailed information about the program and these requirements see the Graduate Handbook.
