Medical Students Get Full Tuition Scholarships and a Stipend When They Add A PhD On To Medical School!
According to the AAMC – Association of American Medical Colleges there are 123 combined MD and PhD programs in the United States. These programs are geared towards people that want to become research physicians.
Physician-scientists are needed so that the achievements of basic science laboratories and other focused research efforts can be translated into active clinical practice. However, the financial pressures on MD-only graduates are so great that few physicians choose to spend the time necessary to obtain research training after medical school. In order to address this issue, most MD-PhD programs pay candidates a stipend and tuition scholarships during the training years. The financial support for those willing to undertake MD-PhD training recognizes the additional time that a student must spend in training for this career. The extent of this support varies among programs. For example, some programs only support U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
