International Students

The MD-PhD program at the Geisel School welcomes applications from all individuals interested in physician-scientist training, regardless of citizenship status. We offer full funding to international students who hold appropriate visas, reflected in the high number of international students in our program. In addition to being outstanding scholars, international students greatly enrich the diversity of the training environment, and bring different perspectives to the MD-PhD community.

Admissions requirements for international students are identical to those of US citizens and permanent residents. As a reminder, applicants need to have had at least three years of full-time study at an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada.

International students receive the same financial package as US citizens and permanent residents.
