The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the University of Rochester is hosting our MD/PhD Program Outreach Symposium on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. This event is for both high school and college students, and their parents are also welcome to attend. Attached is a flyer with the link to the registration website. Please distribute this to any students who you think may be interested in this event. 

by Monday, October 17, to ensure a seat and free meals for the day (breakfast and lunch).

The MSTP, part of the medical school, is a federally funded MD/PhD program for students training for both medical (MD) and research (PhD) degrees. The goal of the conference is to let interested undergraduate and high school students know about MD/PhD programs as a route to a career in medical research. Our program director and associate director will be giving an overview of MD/PhD programs and admissions. Dr. Jason Mendler, a UR MSTP alumnus, will be giving the keynote address, to share his experiences as a physician scientist. Students at each stage in their training will present their perspectives and showcase some of their exciting research. In addition, small group sessions will be able to provide tailored advice to the students, ranging from how to approach the early undergraduate years with an MD/PhD in mind to more specific questions about admissions and the interview process.

This will be an exciting and educational experience for all high school and college students thinking about pursuing a career in medicine or scientific research! If you have questions, please contact us at We hope to hear from you soon.
