The NJMS Office of the Senior Associate
Dean for Research, in conjunction with the NJMS Office of Education, is
pleased to announce a new M.D. with Thesis research program for NJMS medical
students. The program will be directed by Dr. Padmini Salgame, Department

for NJMS medical students to conduct original research during their medical
school training. After admission to the program, the student is
expected to devote one year exclusively to independent research that is
Laboratory, Clinical or Population based. During the research year,
the student will enroll in a NJMS Scholars Program. The student
may receive a stipend during the research year (subject to available funding).
Upon successful completion of the doctor of medicine requirements, thesis
and satisfactory defense, the student will graduate with an MD degree
with Distinction in Research.
