Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)


First year Einstein MSTP students take courses designed specifically for MSTP students (listed below). In addition, they take four first year medical school courses: Immunology, Pharmacology, CV Medicine, and Renal Systems. Students also take 4-5 graduate school classes based on their individual scientific interests. During the second year MSTP students take the medical school organ system courses that combine physiology, pathophysiology, histology, and pathology.

MSTP students must complete a total of 18 credits of graduate school courses. Students who have not completed these courses during the first year do so during their third year. Students entering with a Master's degree in a scientific discipline relevant to their thesis research are only required to take 15 credits of graduate school classes.

Descriptions of these courses can be found below.
