Program Goals

The MD/PhD Program is built upon a strongly collaborative and well integrated partnership that incorporates the medical education and research programs of the Sidney Kimmel Medical College and the biomedical PhD training programs of the Jefferson Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Our goal is to give you the opportunity to develop into motivated and enthusiastic physician scientists who will elect a life-long career in biomedical research, translating fundamental discoveries into improved health care delivery and serving as role models for the next generation of investigators.
