Hello all,

I'm completing an MD/PhD through a non-traditional route. During my first year of medical school I decided I wanted to pursue a PhD as well and was granted a leave of absence from my university to pursue one at a different university following completion of M2 year and passing of Step1. I'm currently in the first year of a PhD program at a different university from where I am getting my MD from.

I'm considering applying for an F30 grant but saw the eligibility requirements state you need to be enrolled in a dual-degree program. Do I meet this eligibility requirement since I am pursuing both degrees through separate programs? Also, the current university that I am at for my PhD has an MSTP, but I am not part of that. My medical school does not have an MSTP. If I'm not eligible for the F30, are there any other NIH fellowships/grants I would be eligible for? Thanks!

I'm not sure, but just contact your program officer- they have all the answers!
