Mentors for MD/PhD Students

A major goal of the MD/PhD-track of the START@Yale program is to provide participants with the opportunity to undertake a graduate research rotation during the summer before the first year of medical school.  Participants can choose any faculty member with a primary or secondary appointment in a Yale Graduate School department.  A full list of all Graduate School faculty is available at:

http://bbs.yale.edu/people/index.aspx

We especially encourage START@Yale participants to take this first rotation with physician-scientist mentors who are role models for successful career development that involved both research and clinical training.  Examples of clinically trained physician-scientist faculty members are listed below.  A link is provided for information about the research interests of each of these faculty members:
