NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program

The National Institutes of Health Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program is an accelerated, individualized doctoral training program for outstanding science students committed to biomedical research careers. The program is based on the British system in which students perform doctoral research without required formal courses other than those which students choose to take in relation to their own interests. Students selected for admission to the program have already developed a sophisticated scientific background by having engaged in research as undergraduates. Students receive an annual stipend, health insurance, travel support and other academic support while studying in the UK and at the NIH. All laboratory research expenses are covered.

An option for combined MD/PhD training through a U.S. medical school is available to a limited number of students.
