Summary of Application Experience

It\'s a super long process to apply for MD/PhD programs. It literally took up more than 1 year and thousands of dollars to apply. I recommend any fellow MD/PhD applicants to start researching about different programs once you decide that MD/PhD is right for you and try to find someone who has been through this program as your mentor. Good luck!
