Annual MD/PhD Retreat

Each year, the MD/PhD Program sponsors a Retreat. The retreat is planned by a committee led by students and MD/PhD Program leadership. The annual MD/PhD Retreat is held off site during a weekend in the fall. Activities generally include a keynote address by an internationally prominent scientist, a State of the Program presentation by the MD/PhD Program Co-Directors, an alumni discussion panel, a poster and oral platform session, and small group breakout sessions focused on issues relevant to specific stages of training (preclinical, graduate, clinical) and career planning. Time is set aside for recreational activities such as hiking, bike riding or swimming. Attendees at the Retreat typically include the Program Directors, faculty involved in MD/PhD education, alumni and students, and other program stakeholders.
