MD-MSc in Clinical Investigation Sciences

MD-MSc in Clinical Investigation Sciences

Students admitted to the University of Louisville School of Medicine can pursue a dual MD-MSc degree program with only one additional year of study beyond the traditional four-year medical school curriculum.

Medical students pursuing the dual MD-MSc degree begin the MSc course work after completing one year of clinical training (i.e., the third year of medical school). Dual-degree students spend the fall, spring, and summer semesters of their fourth year completing the MSc course work. They complete their professional paper for the MSc degree during their fourth year.

Graduates of the program can expect to be highly competitive for residency and fellowship positions at prestigious institutions.

Dual-degree students must be admitted by both the School of Medicine and the School of Public Health and Information Sciences.
