M.D./Ph.D. program

As an M.D./Ph.D. scholar, you will join a very active doctoral training program in the biological sciences at UC Davis.  During the past several years, the campus has awarded more Ph.D.s in the biological sciences than any other university in the U.S.  Few universities offer the combined assets of a medical school, a veterinary school, and colleges of engineering, biological sciences, and agricultural and environmental sciences on one campus.  The resulting depth of resources and breadth of collaborative opportunities enable scholars here to pursue “bench to bedside” research programs in a very wide range of areas relevant to medicine.  UC Davis offers exceptional research opportunities in cancer and vascular biology, infectious disease, and neurosciences, as well as in cutting-edge approaches such as biomedical engineering and functional genomics.”
