The Leaders in Medicine joint degree program is designed to enable highly motivated students to complete a graduate and medical degree through the University of Calgary. The program's objective is to train clinicians for a diverse range of careers in academic medicine. Students can expect to develop a unique academic approach to clinical experiences, and to bring a clinical perspective to research.
The leaders in Medicine Program is led by Snyder Institute members Dr. Paul Beck, Dr. Morley Hollenberg& Dr. Bryan Yipp.
Students are registered in MD/PhD and MD/MSc programs, as well as MD/MBA and MD/MA degrees. The most common graduate programs selected by Leaders in Medicine participants are offered through the Cumming School of Medicine, although students from other faculties including Business and Engineering have participated.
