- MD-PhD admissions and career workshops, October-November September 19, 2010
The mission of the MD-PhD Section is to advance the education, training and career development of physician-scientists, with an emphasis on training in the MD-PhD programs of LCME accredited medical schools. Individuals who are trained as both physicians and scientists make unique contributions to biomedical research, the translation of that research from theory to practice, and the leadership of academic health centers. The Section will promote the development, growth, and nurturing of physician scientist training programs by representing the interests of MD-PhD programs and their students in the areas of admissions, educational programs, scientific curricula, research and clinical training, and post graduate career development. To accomplish this, the Section will strive to:
Membership to the MD-PhD Section of the GREAT Group is made under the authority of the medical dean of medical schools that are members of the AAMC. The dean or deans shall nominate an individual, or individuals (as appropriate) from faculty and administrative ranks who serve(s) a leadership role in MD-PhD programs.
