Prospective dual-degree students for the Medical Science Training Program are encouraged to inquire about neuroscience research opportunities and placement in laboratory rotations within the institute. Medical Science Training Program students are required to take G780 Foundations of Neuroscience. Entering students may transfer as many as 30 credit hours from the MD curriculum to satisfy minor or elective requirements. Upon entering the program, students take required Medical Neuroscience Graduate Program classes and elective courses relevant to their thesis work in consultation with their mentor and the program directors/advisory committee. Medical Science Training Program students are expected to complete their graduate work no later than year four following admission to the Medical Neuroscience Graduate Program.
