Combined PhD Degree: PhD/VMD

To enable students to gain both research and clinical experience, the Veterinary School offers a joint program similar to that of the Bioengineering PhD/MD program. If you apply, you must obtain admission to both the graduate program in Bioengineering and to the School of Veterinary Medicine.

Where to Apply:

Our Bioengineers spend a minimum of 6.5 to 7 years in coursework and research, and by engaging in this program, PhD/VMD students satisfy the degree requirements for both degrees.

Additional Information:

For additional information on the PhD/VMD program, please contact the Bioengineering Graduate Group.
