2024 Admissions

Funding Opportunities

McGill MDCM-PhD students receive funding during the PhD years of the program according to harmonized stipend policy for the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. Students are also encouraged to apply for funding through external agencies for the Ph.D. portion of the program.

One funding option is the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s (CIHR) Canada Graduate Scholarships for doctoral studies (valued at $35,000/year for 3 years). Another is the Vanier CGS Tri-Agency Award (valued at $50,000/year for 3 years).

Travel Funds

Yearly travel funds to attend scholarly meetings or conferences are available. Priority is given to those registered full-time in the PhD portion of the joint program. As a pre-requisite, you must apply for the McGill Graduate Research Enhancement and Travel (GREAT) Award.

Each McGill department has their own application form, deadline dates and requirements. Therefore, you will need to consult the individual department’s website for more information.

To apply for the MD-PhD program Student Travel Award, you should submit a photocopy of your GREAT Award application to: mdphdadmin.med [at] mcgill.ca.
