The MD-PhD Program is a track of the Medical School that provides training in both medicine and research. This path is designed for medical students who have outstanding credentials and are highly motivated to become research physicians, also known as physician-scientists. During the 6-year MD degree, the students take all the courses in the regular MD curriculum and additional courses focused on advanced research topics, leading to a MD-PhD certificate. After obtaining the MD degree and the MD-PhD certification, students can choose (but are not obligated) to enroll in a post-graduate PhD Program. Applications are open to students at their third year of any Italian Medical School. Selection is based on academic record and entrance examination. Between five and ten students are admitted to the program each year. Students admitted to the Program do not pay tuition fees, they receive a scholarship for living expenses and can apply for free housing in a university residence, if resident outside the province of Turin.
Take note that a new Regulation has been approved recently by the UNITO authorities and wil be made public soon, which changes the rules requirements for admission. Indeed, students at the 3rd rather than at the 2nd year of the Medical School will be enrolled. Requirements will involve the accomplishment not only of the due exams of the 1st but also of the 2nd year of the Medical curriculum.
