Medical Scientist Training Program

Medical Scientist Training Program

Medical Scientist Training Programs (MSTPs) are extremely competitive (MD/PhD) training programs that streamline the education towards M.D. and Ph.D. graduate degree degrees. MSTPs are offered by a small number of United States medical schools with financial support from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goal of these training programs is to produce physician scientists who have the unique ability to translate laboratory discoveries into effective treatments for patients. There are currently 45 participating institutions with MSTPs for a total of 933 trainees in all stages of the programs. MSTPs exist primarily at prominent medical schools, and, as of 2011, all top 20 medical school as ranked by the US News and Report had a MSTP. The most recent MSTP grant was awarded to The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 2011.
