The 2017 deadline has passed for applications to the MA/MD program.
Please contact Mrs. Liz Bayer at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Applications to the program will be accepted from students who are in the first three years of the medical curriculum; have distinguished themselves in coursework at Washington University School of Medicine and hold no academic encumbrances. Applicants will be evaluated on the following criteria:
Strength of the applicant’s academic record
Upon selection of a mentor, the student should contact the program administrator, Mrs. Liz Bayer (email@example.com) in the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences to discuss funding mechanisms for the research year.
The final step in applying to the program is the submission of the on-line MA/MD Application. After clicking the Apply button below, you will login using your WUSTL Key to access the application; which consists of a research proposal, personal statement and past research descriptions. Upon submission the applicant's mentor will be contacted and asked to provide a letter of support and current NIH Biosketch.
The proposal includes a statement of the research problem, the relevance and significance of the work, and the methodologies and data analyses to be used. Although the written proposal should be the work of the student, it is understood that the sponsor will provide guidance in its preparation. The project should be such that it is feasible to complete within the one-year time frame of the fellowship.
