Meet The Students

Group of students and faculty as part of M.D.-Ph.D. Program on staircase during their annual retreatStudents enter the MSTP with many different backgrounds, interests, and plans for the future. Each year as we look through applications, we select candidates that together will make a great class. We thrive on diversity and rely on differences to make us the best we can be.

As a student, you can expect a tight-knit group of fellow students that are involved on campus and throughout the community. Regardless of your educational goals and where they take you, you'll have the support needed for success.
