NIH Funds OSU Medical Scientist Training Program 


Ohio State’s College of Medicine has been awarded highly coveted funding from The National Institutes of Health (NIH) to propel education of medical students in both clinical medicine and basic science research.

The new Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), a designation given only to combined MD-PhD programs receiving NIH support, offers an integrated curriculum and provides rigorous training in both biomedical research and clinical medicine necessary for achievement of both the MD and PhD degrees.

The Ohio State University College of Medicine is a member of an NIH consortium that expedites the translation of scientific discovery into higher quality patient care. According to Dr. Larry Schlesinger, director of the MSTP, the prestigious and exclusive award will enable expansion of existing opportunities and programming for medical students, such as assistance with recruitment efforts, increasing funding for medical students for travel to national and international meetings to showcase their work, and increasing the quality and number of trainees.
