MD-MS in Biomedical Engineering

The Doctor of Medicine/Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MD/MS) dual degree program is an integrated program offered between the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University.  The purpose of this program is to supplement the current training of medical students with world-class training in biomedical engineering at the graduate-level.  This interdisciplinary educational experience will prepare students to become innovative leaders in science, engineering, and medicine.  The program is open to a select group of Columbia medical students and makes possible the earning of both the MD and MS degree in 5 years (4 years for the MD program, 1 year for the MS program).  The program allows for 6 pts from the MD degree, through completion of anatomy coursework, counted toward the Master of Science degree requirements.  Students must apply separately to the Department of Biomedical Engineering.  To learn more about the admission requirements and application process, please visit the Columbia Engineering website.  For more info, contact
