Designed as a seven-year, integrated experience, the first two years of the D.O./Ph.D. program are primarily completed in preclinical medical school courses. In the summer between year 1 and 2 of medical school, you will participate in the Summer Medical School Fellowship with a GSBS Faculty member. A letter from this mentor is required for your application to the D.O./Ph.D. program.
