We offer three core programs – in biomedical sciences, neuroscience and biomedical engineering – and many affiliate PhD programs. Additionally, an MSTP Fellowship for pediatric research is available through a special partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Ohio State’s LSI3 curriculum blends our innovative medical school program with the curricula of partnering graduate programs to provide MSTP students with a comprehensive learning experience.
MSTP AdmissionsAdmission to the MSTP program must be made through the American Medical College Applications Service (AMCAS) beginning June 1 through November 1 of the year prior to anticipated matriculation. Early application is strongly encouraged, as slots for interviews fill up quickly. Please visit our FAQ and Resources page for information such as application requirements and specifics on important dates and deadlines.
Applicants selected for an interview will be contacted by the MSTP office and invited to campus. Students accepted to the program will have a chance to revisit Ohio State during the second look weekend before making their final decision.
Our PeopleWe want every student to be successful, and provide support at every level of education and training. Mentorship is key; our MSTP Mentorship Academy connects students with seasoned MSTP faculty members for guidance and feedback. We’re proud of our current roster of MSTP students, and encourage you to learn more about this cohort of talented and highly accomplished candidates.
Program Director Lawrence S. Kirschner, MD, PhD explains the exciting opportunities that await students who decide to enter the dual degree program. While rigorous and challenging, the end result will be a career that allows students to make a huge impact on future generations. We hope that you consider pursuing this educational career and can one day call you a colleague. Together, we all push back on the boundaries that limit our knowledge.
