Welcome

Now is an exciting time to pursue your passion for medicine and science. An MD-PhD degree will provide you the training to lead in the areas of research and medicine - to build a bridge between the disciplines.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an internationally known research and clinical institution which offers many well-established and innovative research programs, all of which are directed by a superior faculty. Students in the MD-PhD Program benefit not only from the many outstanding basic science departments, but also from a very research-oriented faculty in each of the clinical departments.

In 1999, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was granted a National Institutes of Health Medical Scientist Training Program grant (MSTP).  This grant, along with the substantial committment made by the leadership of the UNC School of Medicine, provides our trainees with stipend and tuition support throughout their education.

The UNC MD-PhD program is further distinguished by providing opportunities to our trainees to pursue their PhD in departments in the School of Medicine, the School of Public Health, the School of Pharmacy, or the College of Arts and Science.
