The Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program stands in solidarity with the Black community and communities of color and is committed to meaningful, long-term change and to the diversity of our student cohort: the faculty and the leaders in biomedical research and academic medicine of tomorrow.
The Tri-institutional MD-PhD Program is training physician-scientists who will become the next generation of leaders in biomedical research. Weill Cornell Medical College, The Rockefeller University, and the Sloan-Kettering Institute combine to form one of the few inter-institutional collaborations dedicated to joint MD and PhD training.
The Program awards the MD degree from Weill Cornell Medical College and the PhD degree from Weill Cornell Graduate School, The Rockefeller University, or Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School. Each year over 600 students apply for on average 16-18 positions, which are fully funded from start to finish-in part by the National Institutes of Health's Medical Scientist Training Program.A: In recent years accepted MD-PhD students have had an average GPA of 3.897 (standard deviation of 0.106) and an average MCAT score in the 96th percentile (standard deviation of 4.41).
