Yasmin Hurd, Ph.D.
The mission of the M.D./Ph.D. program is to create future leaders in science and medicine who are committed, selfless, and ethical, and at the same time, translational and transformative.
The MD/PhD Program at Mount Sinai offers a select group of students the training required to pursue leadership opportunities in academic investigative medicine. The program offers each student diverse opportunities in an outstanding research environment that is integrated with a well-rounded, nationally acclaimed medical education. Our program has been continuously funded by the NIH’s Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) since 1977.
