The University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine has an exceptionally rich tradition of interdisciplinary scholarship. In the spirit of this tradition, The Pritzker School of Medicine offers a wide selection of joint degree programs for individuals interested in the critical interface of medicine, biological sciences, and society.
Students interested in combining clinical and biomedical research can do so through a joint MD/PhD degree with the Biological Sciences. The Pritzker School is also home to several highly competitive and award-winning NIH funded MD/PhD training programs including:
- The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)
- The Growth, Development and Disabilities Training Program (GDDTP)
Students interested in pursuing a PhD degree in the Humanities or Social Sciences can do so as part of a unique interdisciplinary program titled MeSH. This program includes an additional NIH funded MD-PhD program in Medicine, the Social Sciences and Aging.
Students may also graduate with additional master degrees in business, law or policy.
