Yale and University of Puerto Rico team to create new M.D.-Ph.D.s

Top officials from the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) met July 15 with Yale President Peter Salovey in Woodbridge Hall to celebrate a new cooperative agreement designed to increase the research experiences of students at both institutions.

Under the new M.D.-Ph.D. program, students accepted in the M.D. program at the University of Puerto Rico Medical School can enroll in Yale’s Combined Program in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences and will be assigned student and faculty mentors while studying for their Ph.D.s in New Haven.
