Concurrent DVM/PhD Program


K-State College of Veterinary Medicine Concurrent DVM/PhD Program

Scholarships are available to students who have been admitted to the concurrent DVM/PhD program at Kansas State University.  The program provides the opportunity for students to pursue several career options beyond the traditional DVM degree.  Areas of graduate training include comparative medicine, infectious disease, clinical/production medicine, and others. Participants can pursue graduate research training at Kansas State, cooperating USDA laboratories and other qualified academic institutions.   

Students can apply at any time after acceptance to the DVM program. Applicants should have taken at least 20 credits of biology or microbiology and related subjects. Requirements include a good academic standing in undergraduate courses and a competitive composite GRE score. After admission to the DVM/PhD program, fellows must maintain a good academic standing in both veterinary and graduate courses. A minimum GPA of 3.0 must be maintained in order to maintain an active status in the program.  Progress is assessed by a dual degree oversight committee. It is expected that the total time for the DVM/PhD should not exceed seven years.

Additional support for dual degree students is in the form of other scholarships. For example, students interested in infectious disease may be eligible for tuition and graduate training support.
