MD/PhD Program: Medical Scientist Training Program
The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), the MD/PhD program at the University of Washington, was established in 1971. The program's goal is to train scientists with both a broad knowledge in medicine and the ability to productively investigate detailed mechanisms associated with human diseases.
The program emphasizes continuity between the curricula of clinical and basic sciences and is designed for students with a strong interest in research who plan a career in academic medicine.
