*From the UW MSTP Program Overview, "The University of Washington Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) is a dual degree MD/PhD program between the School of Medicine and UW Research. Only MD/PhD programs funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) receive an 'MSTP' designation. With the mission of training future physician-scientists to work in academic medicine, UW MSTP students spend time as a medical student and as a graduate student. Regardless of the program phase, they will always be an MSTP student. The program’s goal is to train scientists with both a broad knowledge in medicine and the ability to productively investigate detailed mechanisms associated with human diseases. The program emphasizes continuity between the curricula of clinical and basic sciences and is designed for students with a strong interest in research."
