Meet Our Current Students

MSTP M1 group photoStudents in the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison come from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. The MSTP program includes students from all over the United States.


We are committed to bringing diversity of interests and background to each incoming class. The training that our students receive and the personal and professional friendships that they make during their time in Madison should last a lifetime.
