Dual Degree Programs

M.D./Ph.D. Programs

The M.D./Ph.D. Programs are offered in conjunction with the Georgetown School of Medicine. The M.D./Ph.D. program is designed for students who are interested in a career conducting medically-related research.

Students in the program spend the first two years in medical school while completing research rotations over the summer. Years 3-6 of the program are generally spent performing Ph.D. research in one of the many laboratories on the Georgetown campus under the auspices of one of our biomedical Ph.D. programs.

M.D./M.S. Programs

The Doctor of Medicine and master’s programs are offered in conjunction with the Georgetown School of Medicine (SOM). Students can craft their own dual degree pathway in completing any Biomedical Graduate Education Master’s program alongside earning an M.D. from SOM. Students can either complete the master’s program prior to starting the M.D. program or between the second and third year of the M.D. program.

Applicants must submit TWO separate applications — one to the M.D. Program and one to the master’s program. Applicants may apply either before starting medical school or during the first two years of medical school. Applicants must receive acceptances from both programs.

M.D./M.S. in Systems Medicine

Offered jointly through the School of Medicine, the M.D./M.S. in Systems Medicine is designed for current Georgetown medical students interested in taking a leadership role in bringing systems medicine into biomedical science and clinical practice and setting the stage for bridging research and clinical care. For more information, please contact Dr. Sona Vasudevan, program director of the M.D./M.S. in Systems Medicine.
