Social Sciences Track

You are here

In the newly created Social Science Track, we accept one student per year. We consider applicants interested in any relevant discipline in the social sciences and humanities. Accepted students will receive full funding and stipend for the entire four years of medical school and four to five years of graduate school. 

Upon acceptance into the program, the student will be assigned to one of the associate program directors for the social science track, Joel Braslow, M.D., Ph.D., or Philippe Bourgois, Ph.D., for advice and mentoring during the first 2 years of medical school (MD1 and MD2) and the PhD years.
