About the Program

The Northwestern University Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) prepares students for exciting and rewarding careers combining biomedical investigation and the practice of medicine.

Through an integrated, seven- to eight-year course of study, MSTP students earn a MD-PhD dual degree and develop research and clinical skills. Our graduates have gone on to positions in the nation's top residency and fellowship programs and careers as medical school faculty members, heads of major divisions of the National Institutes of Health, and leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.
