This program is designed to allow students to participate in a curriculum that is enriched with training in research. Students in our combined degree program have already fulfilled some of the prerequisites for the MDDR. In the first year, all other students participate in a series called Common Questions about Research. The students continue with full- time research for 8 weeks between first and second year. The summer research may be supported through a stipend. Students are required to present a seminar and write and defend a thesis.
