Scripps Research's doctoral program requires highly motivated individuals who thrive on challenges. There are no specific prerequisites; however, applicants should demonstrate good undergraduate training in the biomedical sciences or a related field and a strong commitment to research.

The program is bicoastal and applications are reviewed by an admissions committee composed of faculty from both the Florida and California campuses. As a result, applicants may receive an offer of admission from one or both campuses. To be considered for admission, applicants must interview at the campuses from which they wish to gain admission. Admission standards are the same for the California and Florida campuses, the joint Skaggs-Oxford Program, and the Florida Atlantic University-Scripps Florida MD/PhD Program.

A wide range of perspectives and experiences is essential for educational and scientific excellence. Scripps Research strongly encourages applications from underrepresented and underserved students and does not discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, sex, citizenship or disability.
