Admission to the MD-PhD Program is contingent upon admission to the Harvard
Medical School (HMS) Pathways and/or Health Sciences and Technology (HST)
Program. Applicants in the basic and translational sciences do not need to complete
a separate application to graduate school at this time. Application to
the graduate program is usually made during the second year following matriculation
in medical school.
Some applicants in the social sciences must complete a separate application to the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Currently, the following social science programs do not need to complete a separate application: Economics, Health Policy, History of Science, Population Health Sciences and Religion.
There are two application cycles during the academic year for students applying
to the MD-PhD Program. The
first cycle is for new HMS applicants applying to medical school for the Pathways and/or the HST Program. The second cycle is for medical students currently
enrolled. Evaluation of applicants is based upon careful review of all materials.
Please note that letters of recommendations from research supervisor(s) are
an important component in the evaluation process.
