The University of Texas MD/PhD Program at Houston is a dual degree program of the The University of Texas Medical School at Houston and The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston. The program educates physician-scientists and draws from faculty expertise at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and MD Anderson Cancer Center. This rich training environment—encompassing laboratories, hospitals, and clinics in the Texas Medical Center—ensures that our graduates are uniquely prepared for careers in translational research, where basic research is applied to improving patient care and promoting well-being, and observations/samples from patients are taken to the laboratory to improve understanding of disease mechanisms.
