md phd students

The mission of the Tufts MSTP is to foster the development of diverse and talented trainees into resilient, adaptable, and innovative physician-scientist leaders who will drive solutions to existing, emergent and future critical health care challenges over the course of their careers.  To equip our trainees for this goal, our program integrates education in knowledge and skills for conducting and leading rigorous and reproducible research, with the development of competencies that promote the resilience needed to identify, adapt, and sustain efforts to meet evolving healthcare needs in our society, using the best evidence-based teaching practices.

To enhance their success and propel them to leadership in academic medicine, we provide trainees with new and evolving tools for recognizing and coping with the complex stressors of modern academic medicine. To enhance the diversity of thought in biomedicine, the Tufts MSTP leverages new programs at TUSM and GSBS that enhance DEIB to increase our URG trainees and promote an inclusive and welcoming community.

This program is supported by a Medical Scientist Training Program grant from the National Institutes of Health. All students receive full tuition scholarships and generous stipends throughout their training.

Our students enjoy an integrated curriculum designed to provide continuity across the clinical and research aspects of their program.

Students may select from a dedicated group of over 200 faculty and obtain their PhD training in one of six different PhD programs offered by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
