Dual Degree Programs

MD/PhD Programs

The MD/PhD Programs are offered in conjunction with the Georgetown School of Medicine. The MD/PhD 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 PhD research in one of the many laboratories on the Georgetown campus under the auspices of one of our biomedical PhD programs.

MD/MS 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 MD from SOM. Students can either complete the master’s program prior to starting the MD program or between the second and third year of the MD program.

Applicants must submit TWO separate applications – one to the MD 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.

MD/MS in Systems Medicine

Offered jointly through the School of Medicine, the MD/MS 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 MD/MS in Systems Medicine.
