About

The Comparative and Experimental Medicine program offers the PhD with a concurrent MS degree option for doctoral students who plan to complete the master’s degree while maintaining enrollment in the doctoral program. The Comparative and Experimental Medicine program is offered by the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

Overview

Education

The decision to pursue the concurrent MS/PhD degree must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the last day of classes of the semester previous to the one in which the degree would be conferred. Preferably, the student will decide the path upon entrance into the PhD program.

Students who have already completed a master’s degree in a similar program elsewhere will continue to be admitted directly into the PhD-only program. 

Areas of emphasis may include hematology, oncology, pathology, pharmacology, toxicology, immunology, genetics, infectious disease, epidemiology, metabolism, public health, or other areas of medicine. Exceptions to accommodate students with specific interests must be approved by the director of the program. 

The doctoral committee is chosen during the first year. At least one member must be from the College of Veterinary Medicine and at least one member from an academic unit other than that of the student’s major field.

A comprehensive examination must be passed before the end of the third year of the program. In addition, students must prepare and defend a prospectus outlining their proposed research projects before the end of their third year in the program. 

Exceptions to these requirements are provided for medical residents pursuing doctoral degrees who must successfully complete the comprehensive examination and research prospectus before the end of their fourth year in the program. The Comparative and Experimental Medicine program is offered by the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
