MD/PhD: Info for current students
MD and PhD Coursework requirements:

Coursework:
Students complete the first two years of medicine before focusing full time on the PhD component of their studies. 
Minimum course requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (which vary by the host department: i.e. Immunology vs Biochemistry vs Electrical Engineering etc.) will be applicable in addition to the standard curriculum of medical studies. 
Specific details on this are listed in each department’s supplementary graduate studies regulations and are available on those departmental websites.

Research/Thesis requirements:
The quality and quantity of original research and critical analysis described in the thesis shall be consistent with that required for other doctoral candidates in that field.


Additional Program Elements: Departmental Seminar Series and Research Progress Evaluations

Each student will be required to attend regularly, and annually present within designated research seminar series organized by host department in which they are obtaining their graduate degree. 

The requirements for semi and/or annual advisor committee meetings and FGS progress reports are determined by the Faculty of Graduate studies and the host department’s supplementary regulations.
