  • Princeton-Rutgers M.D.-Ph.D. program trains future physicians in scientific research

    PNI graduate students Thomas Pisano and Ben Deverett are two of 15 graduate students at Princeton who are training to be doctors through a joint program between Princeton University and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
     
    A joint program between Princeton University and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School offers the opportunity to combine scientific research and medical training, leading to a doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degree at Princeton with a medical degree (M.D.) at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson. The program trains students to care for patients as well as explore the underlying causes of medical conditions.
