Curriculum: New Degree: M.S./M.D.

Engineering graduates who want to go to medical school but still continue with engineering have a new option: a joint M.S./M.D. program between Thayer and Dartmouth Medical School.

Designed for med students who plan to practice medicine and want to develop greater understanding of medical technologies, the program includes a funded research experience in engineering that involves practical engineering design and analysis and will lead to a research publication.

For several years Thayer and DMS have offered an M.D./Ph.D. degree program that requires approximately six years of study. The M.S./M.D. program will take between four and five years.

Applicants must hold an undergraduate engineering degree and must apply to each school separately. For further information, visit engineering.dartmouth.edu/academics/graduate/mdms/.
