Ph.D. and M.D.- Ph.D. in Clinical Investigation


Ph.D. Track in Clinical Investigation at the Einstein Graduate Division For MSTP and Ph.D. students

Einstein is in the midst of an exciting period of growth in clinical and translational research. New areas of translational collaboration in education are being established. As part of this endeavor, we are pleased to offer a track in Clinical Investigation for MSTP (MD-PhD) and PhD students. Einstein’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), in collaboration with Einstein’s Graduate Division, provides oversight for this track. The program has been accredited by the New York State Department of Education. Einstein has offered pre-doctoral training leading to a PhD in Biomedical Sciences since 1957, through its Sue Golding Graduate Division and an MD-PhD as part of its Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)) granting MD-PhDs since 1963. The PhD track in Clinical Investigation is open to students in these programs who are interested in obtaining clinical research training and mentorship for their thesis research.

The goal of the PhD in Clinical Investigation program is to provide rigorous advanced training for highly motivated medical or graduate students to become clinical/translational investigators. It is expected that, with receipt of the PhD, these scientists will be prepared for independent research careers and to meaningfully contribute to improving the heath and welfare of our society using clinical and translational research methodology.
