NIH MD/PHD Partnership Training Program

Contacts and Links

 

Participating MSTP Programs

Students obtaining their Ph.D. at the NIH can attend any medical school. However, only those accepted to U.S. MD/PhD programs receiving funding from the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) are eligible to receive central funding for the medical school phase of training which is administered through the MSTP.  Not all MSTP-funded institutions accept NIH MD/PhD Partnership funding, and some are not currently able to supplement the funds we provide, which are capped at $21,000 for tuition and a similar amount for stipend support. This can generate a financial obligation for the remaining tuition, which can be up to $25,000 per year. Financial aid from the medical school may be available to cover all or part of this amount. Those incurring financial obligations during medical school are eligible for the NIH loan repayment program which can repay up to $35,000 per year of medical school debt. In addition, a number of NIH institutes participate in the F30 individual Medical Scientist Training award program. Recipients can apply these funds to any U.S. medical school.

Below is the current listing of the level of participation by MSTP-funded MD/PHD programs in the NIH MD/PhD Partnership. Each program makes admissions decisions independently of the NIH program.  Please contact us with any individual questions or consult our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
