National Institutes of Health MD/PhD Partnership Training Program
The NIH MD/PhD Partnership Training Program coordinates the training, activities and funding for MD/PhD students who conduct research in the intramural research program of the NIH in preparation for a career as physician-scientists in basic or translational biomedical research. The program fosters innovative and interdisciplinary Ph.D. partnerships that are often accelerated in nature. The program takes advantage of the unique resources at the NIH’s main campus in Bethesda, MD, one of the world’s premier biomedical research institutions, and the NIH clinical research center, the nation’s largest hospital and outpatient facility devoted entirely to clinical research. Because NIH does not grant the M.D. or Ph.D., this program is a partnership with participating U.S. Medical schools for the M.D. phase of training.
