Announcing new MD/MS dual degree program

Jun 04 2018

We are pleased to announce the official launch of a new dual degree program between the College of Physicians and Surgeons and Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia.

The Doctor of Medicine/Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MD/MS) program is an integrated program offered between the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University.  The purpose of this program is to supplement the current training of medical students with world-class training in biomedical engineering at the graduate-level.  This interdisciplinary educational experience will prepare students to become innovative leaders in science, engineering, and medicine.  The program is open to a select group of Columbia medical students and makes possible the earning of both the MD and MS degree in 5 years (4 years for the MD program, 1 year for the MS program).  6 pts from the MD degree, through completion of anatomy coursework, will also count toward the Master of Science degree.  Students must apply separately to the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Check out the MD/MS program information page for more details.
