Deadline: December 3, 2013
- Students undertake a collaborative Ph.D. project in any area of biomedical investigation with two research mentors--one at the NIH intramural campus in Bethesda, MD and one at either Oxford or Cambridge Universities in the United Kingdom. Students conduct research at both locations and potentially other sites including field work in Africa and elsewhere around the world.
- All students participate in the enriched environment of the residential colleges of the U.K. Universities and enjoy special educational opportunities for career development and understanding of broader issues surrounding biomedical research.
- Students earn a D.Phil or Ph.D. from Oxford or Cambridge with an average time to completion of four years, just over half the time it takes to complete a biomedical Ph.D. in the U.S.
- The program is FULLY FUNDED for U.S. Citizens and permanent residents, with all students receiving tuition and stipend support for the duration of their Ph.D. training.
- Partnerships with other scholarship programs for training in the U.K. are also possible, including partnerships open to international students.
- Students may also pursue combined M.D./Ph.D. training with funded partnerships with a broad range of U.S. medical schools through the NIH M.D./Ph.D. Partnership Training Program
