There are four steps to apply to the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD Program) at the NYU School of Medicine with important deadlines on October 15. These application steps are detailed in our application timeline.
The MSTP at NYU is funded for US citizens and permanent residents. In addition to the letters of recommendation required by the Medical School, the NYU MSTP requires letters from your research mentors describing your undergraduate research experiences and your potential as a research scientist.
MSTP interviews generally begin in September and conclude in December, with acceptance offers extended in mid-February.
For any other questions you may have, please see our list of frequently asked questions.
(Note: if you are not applying to the NYU MSTP and are only interested in PhD programs in biomedical sciences at NYU, visit the Sackler Institute website. For information on Medical School applications only, visit the NYU School of Medicine website.)
Qualified sophomores and juniors who are interested in pursuing MD, MD/PhD, or PhD degrees and a career in research can take also advantage of our Summer Undergraduate Research Program, offered by the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences in coordination with the MD/PhD Program and the Office of Diversity Affairs.
Students are expected to conduct research on a graduate-student level and may work with faculty in the disciplines of Biochemistry, Biomedical Imaging, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Computational Biology, Developmental Genetics, Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Oncology, Molecular Pharmacology, Neuroscience and Physiology, Parasitology, Pathobiology, Structural Biology, Forensic Pathology, and Virology.
