Following the second year of medical school and after passing Step 1 of the U. S. Medical Licensing Examination, students are admitted in advanced standing into a graduate training program where they begin working on the PhD under the direction of a thesis advisor. Students in the graduate years present clinical cases and journal articles at the MD/PhD Clinical Research Conference as well as satisfy all the academic requirements of their chosen program of graduate study. Students in the graduate years are also encouraged to seek out opportunities for clinical experiences in their area(s) of interest.
