Description: 

In 1993, the Weill Cornell/Rockefeller/Sloan Kettering Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program became the first MD-PhD Program in the country to establish a summer program for underrepresented minority and disadvantaged college students who wish to pursue the combined MD-PhD degree. While we've "trained" other MD-PhD Programs over the years in running such a successful summer program, to this day, we are the only such program which focuses on freshman and sophomore college students.

Every year, 15 students embark on a 10 week intensive journey of learning about the challenging and gratifying road of becoming a physician-scientist.
   

Benefits: 

Students receive a stipend of $6,000, a $1,000 allowance toward on-campus housing, and reimbursement for their travel expenses. Gateways students are all housed in Weill Cornell Medicine student housing.

Additionally, one family member is flown out to NYC for the final presentations and accommodated at a hotel in New York City.
