  • Research may be in the area of clinical or basic research and should encompass a minimum of 16 weeks.
  • Research successfully performed toward attainment of a Ph.D. would not be eligible for this program.
  • Research performed under the auspices of a nationally recognized research program (e.g. Sarnoff, Cloisters, HHMI, or Doris Duke Clinical Research programs) during medical school will be eligible for fulfillment of the research requirement.
md masters in clinical science program
MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program
  • In order to provide a more robust opportunity by which interested medical students can enhance the level of clinical research training, UT Southwestern has established a combined MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program.
  • This training program will combine rigorous didactic training with a mentored clinical research project. The completion of the didactic and practical training will be marked by the successful submission and public defense of a Masters thesis.

What does the program provide?

  • Following the third year of medical school, students enter the two Master's years of the program. During this time, students will receive a stipend, graduate school tuition, and health insurance. This support will be continued throughout the duration of the Masters years of the program.Importantly, after the successful completion of the Master's component of the program, students will receive stipend, medical school tuition, and health insurance support during their final year of medical school.

Application process and selection criteria

  • Application to the program will employ the electronic graduate school application. Successful candidates will be chosen following review by the MD-Master's Program - Selection Committee.
  • In addition to the completed on-line application form, an official medical school transcript and two letters of recommendation are required. For students applying for the 2010-2011 school year, applications should be completed by January 15, 2011. Students selected to participate in the program for the 2010-2011 school year will begin their didactic coursework during the 2011 Fall semester.
