Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)


Welcome to the UI COM Medical Scientist Training Program

The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago Medical Scientist Training Program educates exceptional students for careers as physician-scientists. MD/PhD graduates are positioned to bridge the basic and clinical sciences, and to pursue interdisciplinary approaches to important biomedical problems. Compared to other scientists, MD/PhDs have deeper perceptions of medical significance in biology, greater ability to transfer basic scientific advances toward patient care advances, and more comprehensive understanding of the limitations in current medical practice. Compared to other physicians, MD/PhD graduates stand out for their scientific insight into bedside problems, their ability to educate succeeding generations of students, and as innovative champions of progress in medicine.
