Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)

Preparing Students to be Physician-Scientists

The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at UC San Diego is an inter-institutional collaboration that combines clinical training under the auspices of the UC San Diego School of Medicine with research training from a number of world-renowned research institutions including UC San Diego, The Scripps Research Institute, the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences, the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, and the La Jolla Institute for Immunology. Our Program emphasizes the physician-scientist in all phases of a student’s career. With 90 students currently in our Program, we aim to tailor the research and clinical experience to each student’s interests and needs.
