The MSTP at Stony Brook is an integrated program designed to produce well-trained clinical investigators and medically oriented basic scientists. It involves research training in a basic science department of the student’s choice leading to a Ph.D., and the pursuit of complete medical school curriculum leading to an M.D. degree. MSTP students receive a full tuition waiver and stipend support throughout their stay at Stony Brook.

Students interested in the MSTP are encouraged to apply to this program at the time of application to the medical school and as early as possible, in order to facilitate the dual review process. Consideration for admission to the medical school will not in any way be influenced by application to the MSTP.

Please feel free to solicit any additional letters of recommendation specifically for the MSTP application. These should be sent along with all other letters of recommendation to the School of Medicine Admissions Office via AMCAS.

Please describe the basic and/or clinical research fields that you think you might like to explore and/or develop expertise in during your MSTP training. To the extent that you have defined potential specific future clinical interests, please describe the type(s) of medicine that you might be interested in pursuing once you have completed the MSTP.

Please note that these responses do not commit you to a restricted path if you are accepted to SBU; instead, they are used to help us connect you to the interviewers who can best address your potential interests.
