Academic Advisor

Entering students are assigned a graduate faculty advisor who will handle student questions about courses, rotations, or problems that surface throughout the first year. This faculty advisor is generally from the first choice MTA on the student’s application to the Graduate Program. In cases where the student is unsure about their choice of MTA, a second advisor from another MTA may be assigned. Once a student selects a dissertation advisor and a Multidisciplinary Training Area, with the help of the research mentor, he/she/they selects an Advisory Committee.

Also available to MD/PhD students are the Physician-Scientist Career Advisors, and peer networks, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Well-Being and Resilience.
