Welcome to the MSTP @ Einstein!

The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein) is one of the nation's oldest. From the start, our goal has been to train a diverse group of outstanding students to become future leaders of academic medicine and medical research. Continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health since 1964, the Einstein MSTP has a long list of illustrious Alumni with careers spanning the spectrum from basic science research to clinical medicine and many variations in between.

Today, the Einstein MSTP is still unique. Larger than most other MSTPs, it fosters a strong academic and social community within the college. While large enough to be an independent academic unit, the program is still small enough to provide students with the individual attention their unique careers require.

The current training program recognizes that the successful physician-scientist training is not simply medical school plus graduate training. The program integrates MSTP-specific courses with medical and graduate courses, during the first two years of preclinical course work. Integration continues during the PhD thesis research years through weekly involvement in the MSTP Continuity Clinic and with monthly Clinical Pathological Conferences and MSTP Career Paths Seminars. This combination has resulted in outstanding publications (Latest Publications), competitive residency placement (Match Results), and successful academic careers (Alumni) for its 406 graduates.

Price Center for Genetic & Translational Medicine

The newly open Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine in the Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion Center houses 40 labs. Each floor contains space for both computational and wet-lab bench researchers to increase opportunities for collaboration. The Price Center contains a 100 seat auditorium, a P3 biosafety facility for infectious disease research, chemical synthesis facilities for a chemical biology program and the Biophotonics Center for innovative reseach in imaging technologies.

MSTP Clinical Investigation Track
MSTP students can perform their PhD thesis research in a clinical research setting affiliated with the PhD in Clinical Investigation (PCI) track. The PCI supervises PhD training in the research programs affiliated with the Einstein-Montefiore Institute for Clinical & Translational Research that is funded by the NIH Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA) to Einstein.

The application and admissions process will be identical for all MSTP applicants. For more information on applying to the Einstein MSTP click here.
