Description The combined MD/PhD and MD/Master's programs at Queen's University are offered jointly by the School of Medicine and the School of Graduate Studies, with the participation of the graduate programs in Biomedical and Molecular Sciences, Biomedical Engineering (Collaborative Program), Cancer Research (Collaborative Program), Computing, Epidemiology, Neuroscience, Pathology and Molecular Medicine, and Rehabilitation Science. The program admits a limited number of exceptional students who wish to combine their medical training with advanced training in research. The combined MD/PhD and MD/ Master's Programs provide benefits to both scholarship and to the professional development of physician-scientists by allowing better integration of clinical and research training experiences, and also provide better opportunities for fostering translational research. Students in combined MD/graduate programs bring a distinctive, clinical/translational perspective into their laboratories, and conversely, these students also bring a basic science perspective to share with their fellow medical students. For the graduate degree component, the combined programs draw on the pool of over 200 Graduate faculty members of the participating graduate programs for supervision of thesis projects; for the MD program, our state-of-the-art School of Medicine Building, one of the premier teaching facilities in North America, allows for the integration of modern teaching methods, technology, and interdisciplinary practices to provide a truly exceptional medical training experience.
