David Geffen School of Medicine

MD applicants apply directly to the David Geffen School of Medicine for admissions. The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), a concurrent degree program, is available for exceptional students, some of whom may have tuition and fees paid by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and may receive a stipend in support of their education.

Both the M.D. and Ph.D. degrees may be earned in seven years, depending on the candidate’s course of study and thesis research. The Ph.D. may be awarded in any of the appropriate departments or programs of the School of Medicine or the University. Interested students should consult the MSTP Program Director.
