Medical Students Get Full Tuition Scholarships and a Stipend When They Add A PhD On To Medical School!

tuition scholarships md phdAccording 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.

Here is the list of schools by states offering the dual degree programs.  Check each school for their particular tuition scholarships available.
