Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)


Graduates from the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein) have historically gone onto great medical and academic careers.

Of the 350 MSTP graduates who have completed postgraduate training, 80% are engaged in biomedical research and academic medicine. They hold faculty appointments at 83 medical schools, academic medical centers, NIH and the FDA. Others hold positions at 28 pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Collectively, the graduates have published >16,000 papers, for an average of ~53 publications/graduate. In addition, they hold over 260 patents. Thus, by a variety of measures they have gone on to highly successful careers.

Life after the MSTP at Einstein begins with residency for most graduates. Check out where MSTP students at Einstein have matched.
