Other Academic Programs

Skaggs-Oxford Program

The joint Skaggs-Oxford Program permits highly qualified students to gain a broader and deeper interdisciplinary research experience than is possible from a single institution's doctoral program. It provides diversity in curriculum, scientific approaches, and research training with access to facilities and expertise at both Oxford and Scripps. Successful applicants undertake research in chemistry or biology at Scripps and biochemistry in the Department of Biochemistry at Oxford.

KL2 Master’s Program for Physician-Scientists

Young physicians envisioning a career as both clinicians and scientists are ideal candidates for participation in the KL2 Masters Program for Physician-Scientists of the Scripps Translational Science Institute. The KL2 grant allows for a recently trained clinical physician to pursue a Master’s Degree in the discipline of Clinical and Translational Investigation (MCTI). The MCTI program introduces and enables the evolving physician scientist in the domains of biostatistics, genomics, molecular medicine, and clinical trial design and execution via seminar participation with colleagues from the Graduate Program at Scripps. The KL2 scholar then develops a collaborative research endeavor in conjunction with basic or translational or community engagement scientists at TSRI, the Whittier Institute, the Scripps Clinic, or one of our other numerous scientific and clinical partner organizations.

Scripps Florida-Florida Atlantic University M.D./Ph.D. Program

The Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine and The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have established a dual M.D./Ph.D. degree program to provide rigorous training for talented students pursuing a clinician-scientist career path. The program combines the unique preclinical and clinical training programs at FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine with laboratory research training and interdisciplinary science courses offered on the Florida campus of TSRI, a biomedical research institute whose Doctoral Program in Chemical and Biological Sciences is consistently ranked among the top ten in the nation. TSRI’s program is customizable depending on the student’s research interests and biomedical research goals. The medical degree is awarded by the FAU Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine and the doctorate by TSRI.
