We would also like to invite you to make a financial contribution to the Martin Dworkin Legacy Fund.  Dr. Dworkin was the first Program Director and served in a primary leadership role for most of of the program's history. His influence played an invaluable role in establishing and shaping the program into what it is today. This fund provides the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) with the funds necessary for program development and to support our students through the course of their training.  Visit to donate or donate here.
