Medicine (M.D./Ph.D.)

Program Information
Faculty: Medicine
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Medicine (MD)
Description The primary mission of the UBC M.D./Ph.D. Program is to train and nurture future clinician-scientists who excel both in clinical medicine and basic sciences. This sets the program apart from the traditional M.D. and Ph.D. programs. The program of study is built upon the regular M.D. curriculum, but it is further "customized" to meet the unique career goals of individual students based on their previous research experience, and chosen medical field of expertise. Thus, graduates of the M.D./Ph.D. Program are trained as competent physicians as well as skilled scientists. The combined M.D./Ph.D. degree should adequately prepare the candidates to pursue a research-intensive track of residency and postdoctoral training in a specialty or discipline of their choice, ultimately leading to a competitive and independent clinical investigative career. The combined M.D./Ph.D. Program is an integrated program jointly administered by the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Graduate Studies. In addition to fulfilling the requirements of the regular undergraduate M.D. curriculum, M.D./Ph.D. students will also undertake graduate level coursework as required by their chosen field of research. Curriculum planning, coursework, and research training are to be closely integrated and coordinated between the basic sciences and clinical disciplines throughout the 7-year program.
