The Health Science - Clinical Investigation PhD offered at Johns Hopkins University is a flagship program and designed for those candidates who currently hold a postdoctoral fellowship or junior faculty appointment within a Johns Hopkins School of Medicine clinical department. 


What you will learn

The Health Science - Clinical Investigation PhD offered at Johns Hopkins University is a four-year program, which leads to both clinical board eligibility in a medical discipline and the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Clinical Investigation. 

One full year of didactic instruction is ordinarily taken after an initial clinical year in a medical or surgical specialty, and provides the scientific grounding for subsequent original research. This research effort is jointly mentored by faculty from the program and a preceptor from the fellow's home division or department.

PhD track candidates already enrolled in a clinical fellowship program at Johns Hopkins may apply to enter the program during their last year of clinical training. Alternatively, applications for the program also are accepted concurrently with clinical fellowship applications for those who seek an early commitment.

Program fellows normally will receive, from a variety of sources, tuition and stipend support consistent with the usual level of postdoctoral support for their clinical specialties.
