Has anyone chosen to or had to transfer between different universities while in an MD/PhD program? Why did you transfer (personal reasons? because you had to move to a new university to finish your research when your mentor took a new job, and you wanted to stay on there rather than return to your original institution to finish the program? other reasons?) at what point did you transfer (during PhD? after PhD, before 3rd year? during 3rd or 4th year?)? How did it work out for you financially? emotionally? beaurocracy-wise? etc? Did you have to pay back all of your stipend/tuition to the original program? Did you have to pay for the remaining years? Were both programs MSTP or was one (or both) institutionally financed programs? I might be facing this situation, and i'm just wondering how it's worked out for anyone else, or if it's even possible. Thanks!
