NIH Medical Scientist Partnership Program

NIH MD PHD Partnership Training Program

Students interested in pursuing a career as a physician-scientist may pair the NIH OxCam Scholars PhD Program with a U.S. clinical degree program or medical school via the NIH MD/PhD Partnership Program. Since the NIH does not grant MD or PhD degrees, the program partners with U.S.-based clinical degree programs and medical schools for the student’s MD phase of training and with the NIH Graduate Partnership Programs (GPP) for the PhD phase of training. Students who are applying to clinical degree or medical school (Track 1) as well as students who plan to enroll in medical school this fall (Track 2) are eligible to apply (see schematic below). Track 1 Pathway Track 1 is for students who are completing the undergraduate degree and currently applying to clinical degree programs. Accepted students may receive 4 years of funding support towards the clinical degree. Track 2 Pathway Track 2 is for students who are currently enrolled in a clinical degree school and are applying at the start of the rst year of clinical training. Accepted students may receive 3 years of funding support towards the clinical degree.
