Sure, you can just apply to PhD programs with everyone else. There are some threads on this over in the pre-MD/PhD forum for which you can search. There are also programs specifically designed for this; the one I'm familiar with is this:all41 said:Does any of you know if it's possible to do PhD after graduation, meaning not as a combined MD/PhD program?
Sorry, but a 1 year PhD program is not a "real" doctorate level program.Crypt Abscess said:It is much easier to get your PhD after an MD. Many residency and fellowship programs offer research tracks which culminate in a PhD with only an additional year of time. At most programs that I am aware of, you get paid the normal PGY level salary, and tuition is covered. This provides a small financial incentive.
