Abstract

After the experience with the first three classes, the M.D. program for Ph.D.s at the University of Miami School of Medicine is analyzed in terms of the backgrounds of students, their motivations toward a medical education, criteria for admission, curriculum, budget, and evaluation of student performance. Subjective assessments and scores on the examination of the National Board of Medical Examiners both confirm the ability of selected Ph.D. scientists, even those with little or no previous exposure to biological disciplines, to perform well as medical students in an intense and abbreviated curriculum. Their success appears to continue during internship. Graduates have begun to enter diverse careers in clinical medicine.
