The MD/PhD program is designed to produce academic clinician scientists with advanced clinical and research skills who are interested in a career that combines both research and clinical medicine. This program is open to Canadian citizens or permanent residents that have been accepted or are currently enrolled in the Max Rady College of Medicine.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    The PhD program is for students currently enrolled in Medicine who then pursue graduate studies at the end of their second year or for current graduate students who are conducting health-related research. Medical students are eligible to apply upon initial admission to Medicine and at any time during the first two years of the MD program. To be considered for admission to the PhD Program, you must have completed an MSc or MA and possess a comprehensive understanding of what it means to conduct research. Candidates with limited research experience are encouraged to obtain hand-on experience in the field (through the BSc Med program, for example) prior to applying for the MD/PhD program.
