The curriculum for MD/PhD students includes the major portions of the medical school and graduate college curricula in a manner that economizes on time, eliminates duplication, and provides an integrated physician-scientist education. While the exact amount of time it takes to complete both degrees will vary from student to student, the curriculum includes flexibility that makes it possible for many students to finish in seven years.
