We offer, on a selective basis, the opportunity for medical students to participate
in our joint MD/MA program. In addition to their coursework, these students enroll
in the MD with Scholarly Concentration program and take 18 credits from our MA program
in Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care and Bioethics to receive a joint MD/MA upon
graduation. Medical students wishing to enroll in this program should contact Dr.
Stephen Post at Stephen.Post@stonybrookmedicine.edu for details about how to apply.
