Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD)

Welcome to the University of Cincinnati MSTP!

Welcome to the Cincinnati Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), a multi-institutional MD/PhD program supported by the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is ranked No. 3 in the nation among Honor Roll hospitals in the U.S. News and World Report 2019-2020 Best Children’s Hospitals. Along with the No. 3 overall ranking they were also ranked in the top 10 in the nation in all 10 pediatric specialties. Together, our two institutions provide outstanding opportunities for training tomorrow's leaders in academic medicine.

The mission of our program is to develop individuals who truly make a difference in patient outcomes through bench to bedside research. Students in our program receive personalized, longitudinal mentoring through our Senior Physician Scientist (SPS) Mentor Program from the beginning of their first year. SPS mentors help our students define long-term career goals and make decisions about everything from research rotations to residency programs. Our graduates consistently match at top residency and fellowship programs nationwide. MSTP alumni include department chairs, center directors, and faculty members at leading medical schools.
