MPAS/PhD


A combined MPAS and PhD degree option has been established. The format is designed on a case-by-case basis to best meet the needs of the individual student. The GSBS requirements are equivalent to those described in blocks 2 and 3 for the DO/PhD  Format.

The goal of the curriculum for the MPAS/PhD track is to obtain the clinical skill training within the MPAS program in combination with obtaining a traditional PhD in biomedical research. Interested students should consult with the MPAS staff and/or Director of the Multidisciplinary Program.
