MD/PhD Admissions Requirements


Application to the MD/PhD program requires only an application to Georgetown School of Medicine; a separate application to the graduate program of interest is not required. Therefore, the GRE is not required.

There are no specific GPA or MCAT score cutoffs used for admission to the MD/PhD program. However, most successful applicants have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and a cumulative MCAT score in the 80th percentile or higher. Apply as an MD/PhD candidate via the AMCAS system (deadline – November 1, 2022). This will require several extra essays at this initial step. When you receive the secondary application, make sure to denote that you are an MD/PhD applicant. The secondary application is due by November 25, 2022 (slightly earlier than the deadline for applications to the regular MD program). Admissions to the MD/PhD program are NOT done on a rolling basis; instead, all the applications are considered together after the due date and selected applicants are offered an interview. Interviews will be conducted in early 2023.

Only U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply for the MD/PhD program.

Financial Aid

Students admitted to the MD/PhD program in the 2022-2023 admissions cycle will receive a full tuition scholarship and stipend during the entirety of their training. During the medical school portion of their training, the stipend will be $26,352 per year. During the graduate school portion, the stipend will be $36,934 per year.
