Doctoral Diversity Program (DDP)

DDP is a post-baccalaureate program in the Initiative for Careers in Science and Medicine pipeline. Students from diverse or low-income backgrounds who are interested in pursuing an MD, PhD, MD/PhD or other biomedical research careers build their research skills and network for two years in the DDP. Students not only work in the laboratory, but also receive coursework in scientific writing as well as exam preparation and the opportunity for shadowing at the Hospital.  Additional information about the program can be found here.
