Welcome to the Indiana University Medical Scientist Training Program

Welcome to the Indiana University Medical Scientist Training Program--a joint venture between the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University.  If you are interested in becoming a physician scientist or physician engineer, we have a program that can help you realize that goal with a combination of strong mentorship, an incredible breadth of research opportunities, and a unique medical school curriculum.

The goal of our MSTP is to individualize your training and to develop for you an academic program that integrates state-of-the-art clinical medical training with cutting-edge biomedical research.  We offer a broad range of academic programs that span from the traditional programs of anatomy and cell biology, cellular and integrative physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology, microbiology and immunology, pharmacology and toxicology, and medical and molecular genetics to next generation programs in biomedical engineering, medical biophysics, and medical neurobiology

We look forward to working with you to realize your career aspirations.  We believe that advancements in medicine are the result of dynamic interaction between the research laboratory and the patient bedside.  We are eager to help you develop your clinical acumen and knowledge of the basic sciences that will allow you to gain insight into the molecular pathogenesis of disease with the goal of developing new therapies.

We invite you to look through our website and realize the incredible opportunities our program presents.  If you have questions, we are delighted to answer them for you just contact us.
