Predoctoral Admissions and Application

Admissions

The admissions process for the MD-MTR program is competitive and requires admission to both the MD and MTR programs. During the current year applications will only be accepted from Penn Med students. In future years, applications may be accepted by candidates simultaneously making initial application to the MD program, so that it is possible to receive initial acceptance into the MD-MTR program. The MD-MTR program is only open to students who are or will be enrolled at Penn. Medical students at other institutions are not eligible to apply.

Applications are due in year 3 of the MD program. Consideration for CTSA TL1 funding will begin in Mid - November 2013 and applications will be reviewed in the order they are received.
