National Institutes of Health- Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program

Deadline: December, 2023

The National Institutes of Health (NIH)-Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program is an accelerated, individualized doctoral training program for outstanding students committed to biomedical research. It enables students to undertake a collaborative project in any area of biomedical investigation involving two mentors: one in Bethesda, Maryland, and one at either Oxford or Cambridge University. Students conduct research at both locations and, potentially, other sites around the world.

All students participate in educational opportunities that develop their understanding of disease outcomes and policy issues related to their studies. The projects culminate in the award of a D.Phil. or Ph.D. in science from either Oxford or Cambridge. Students may also pursue combined M.D./ Ph.D. training through partnerships with a broad range of American medical schools.
