Medical Scientist Training Program

Directory of Program Advisors

All MD-PhD students are assigned to one of the MD-PhD Program Advisors. These are a select group of Penn physician scientists. You are expected to meet with your advisor at least once a year, and are strongly encouraged to be in touch with him/her more often — either through additional meetings or by e-mail or phone. Our vision is that the MD-PhD program advisor will help provide mentoring and guidance on many issues, particularly those unique to MD-PhD training and careers.
