Two oral and maxillofacial surgery residents per year enter P&S to earn an M.D. degree, then return to complete the Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program.
The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Training Program is a six year post D.D.S program sponsored by New York Presbyterian Hospital. After completing the first year of training, residents enter P&S and, after two years, earn the M. D. degree. These residents then complete the PGY 1 year in general surgery before returning to the oral and maxillofacial surgery service for the final two years of the program.
The Faculties of Business and Medicine offer a joint program leading to the degrees of Master of Business Administration and Doctor of Medicine. The program is designed for students with an interest in management and health care.
Students must apply separately to and be admitted by both schools. In addition to satisfying MBA requirements, students must be registered for forty-five (45) points at the Business School and spend three terms in full-time residence at the Business School. Students must satisfy all course requirements for the M.D. degree.
Enrollment in the business component of the joint degree program may not begin until after completion of the second year of medical school. Students must begin matriculation at the Business School in January, and are required to do the first two terms there consecutively (Spring and Summer). Both degrees are awarded simultaneously when requirements for each are completed.
The overall objective of the dual degree program is to offer students an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in both clinical medicine and public health in order to prepare them for an expanding range of opportunities in health and medical care. Students will gain broad insights into community health issues, including environmental concerns, research methods, social and economic aspects of health and health care delivery, preventive approaches to health problems, and evolving health care systems, and will develop special competence in relating the public health and sociomedical sciences to the practice of clinical medicine. Graduates of the program have gone on to careers that combine health care management or research activities with clinical practice in a wide range of specialties.
Students enrolled in P&S must complete thirty five points in public health coursework beyond the points needed for the M.D. degree, and tuition must be paid to the Mailman School of Public Health for at least 30 of these points.
Dual degree applicants must apply to and be accepted in each school separately. The Mailman School of Public Health bulletin and applications are located at: http://www.mailman.hs.columbia.edu/dept/sph.
More information on the dual M.D./M.P.H. degree can be found at: http://www.mailman.hs.columbia.edu/dept/sph/hpm/p_idx.html.
This is a cooperative program sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the College of Physicians and Surgeons for students who have had a strong undergraduate program in science and have a strong commitment to biomedical research. The program allows students to earn the Ph.D. degree in addition to the M.D. degree.
Students who participate in the program are admitted to the College of Physicians and Surgeons and to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
Students complete the basic science requirements of the medical program and are able to take a graduate school course each semester. They then enter a participating department or interdisciplinary program of the graduate school to carry out the Ph.D. program. The graduate school portion includes a clinical competence course to strengthen the medical decision making process and reinforce pathophysiology and therapeutics. Students then complete the balance of the requirements for the M.D. degree.
The participating Ph.D. programs include
|Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics||Biological Sciences|
|Biomedical Engineering||Biomedical Informatics|
|Cell Biology and Pathology||Chemistry|
|Epidemiology||Genetics and Development|
|Integrated Program in Cellular, Molecular and Biophysical Studies||Microbiology|
|Neurobiology and Behavior||Pharmacology|
|Physiology and Cellular Biophysics|
For additional information, students should write to MSTP Program, Department of Pathology, College of Physicians and Surgeons, 630 West 168th Street, New York, NY 10032.
To apply, students should request an application for the College of Physicians and Surgeons. The application form provides instructions for students applying to the MD/PhD Program, and is available online as well at: http://mdphd.columbia.edu
