Washington University in St. Louis’s Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) is designed to prepare students for careers as physician-scientists who are engaged in biomedical research that creates new knowledge for the betterment of society. Established in 1969, MSTP has successfully trained and graduated over 700 physician-scientists, with more than 80% of graduates engaged in academic medicine, employed with the National Institute of Health (NIH), or employed in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry.

Drawing on the combined resources of Washington University, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the MSTP is a well-integrated program that combines outstanding medical training with rigorous PhD studies in biomedical research. Graduates of the program are not physicians and scientists, but physician-scientists who think about clinical and research problems in unique and innovative ways.
