MD-MTR students will be charged 7 semesters of medical tuition (6 semesters in years 1-3 and the final semester of year 5). During Fall and Spring semesters of year 4 and the Fall semester of year 5, MTR tuition will be charged per course unit.
Students take 2 or 3 courses during the semesters they are charged medical school tuition. MTR 607 & 608 is taken in final semester of year 5 (see Sample Study Plan). As long as the student has not already used the benefit that allows med students to take three courses while registered for the MD program, there will be no additional charge beyond MD tuition in those semesters.
A potential partial funding mechanism for the MTR program is the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) training grant. Selected students will be appointed to the grant for 12 months. During the year of appointment (typically July 1 of year 3), students will receive $20,500 toward MTR tuition and $21,600 in stipend (prorated, paid monthly).
For most students, the tuition charges for the MTR will be 3 courses per term during Fall and Spring of year 4 and the Fall semester of year 5. Tuition for these 9 units will total approximately $37,821. If the student is grant funded ($20,500 toward tuition), this will leave approximately $17,321 to be paid by the student. Because MD-MTR students are being billed for 7 semesters of MD tuition, rather than 8, this will make the MD-MTR cost neutral for most students. (If a student has already used their eligibility for the 3 additional courses per term, there will be additional charges for MTR 607 and 608 in the final semester).
