- Cardiovascular Study Program (CVS)
Study animal and cell physiology and genetics as they apply to diseases of the cardiovascular system.
- Clinical Research Study Program (CRSP)
Undertake clinical research using methods and techniques of biostatistics and related disciplines.
- Epidemiology and Public Health Study Program (EPH) MPH/ Dual Degree Programs (MBA, JD, MPP)
Designed to provide a foundation in public health, prevention, and assessment and management of the issues impacting the well-being of populations.
- Master of Science in Information Science (MD/MSIS), Master of Science Library Science (MD/MSLS) or
Master's of Management in Clinical Informatics (MMCi)
Provides students with an opportunity to pursue a dual degree in informatics or information and library science, or a third-year research experience with Duke faculty members involved in informatics research and applications within Duke’s clinical and research settings.
- Global Health Study Program (GHSP)
Conduct interdisciplinary research on a topic related to health and health disparities in a global context, such as infectious diseases, epidemiology, clinical microbiology, translational medicine and social science. Students may also choose to pursue the Duke Master of Science in Global Health (MSc-GH) degree during their Third Year.
- Human Genetics and Genomics Study Program (HGP)
Investigate human genetic disease through molecular biology, gene therapy, experimental systems, or statistical modeling.
- Medical Humanities Study Program (MED HUM)
Offers a multidisciplinary opportunity for students to explore topics in medical history, ethics, theology, and other fields within the medical humanities.
- Microbiology, Infectious Diseases and Immunology Study Program (MIDIP)
Explore molecular mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis or clinical aspects of infectious diseases.
- Molecular Medicine Study Program (MolMed)
Provide third year medical students with an in-depth basic science or translational research experience in either oncological sciences, regenerative medicine, the nutritional and metabolic mechanisms of chronic disease, the molecular basis of disease or translational pharmacology. The five tracks include:
- Neurosciences Study Program (NSS)
Investigate basic and clinical neurosciences, including molecular/cellular neuroscience, neuroimaging, developmental neurobiology, systems/cognitive neuroscience, and neurobiology of disease.
- Ophthalmology and Visual Science Study Program (OVS)
Study the bases and treatments of visual disorders using molecular and cell biology, animal models of ocular disease and prospective and retrospective clinical investigations.
- Primary Care Leadership Track (PCLT)
*This study program is available only to PCLT students.* Offers students committed to primary care an opportunity to develop skills needed for patient centered care and community-engaged, population-based practice
- Pathology Study Program (PSP)
Study disease through utilization of structural and functional changes to gain information about the human organism's response to injury.
