Clinical Science Division Students

med students

Students in the Clinical & Translational Science Program are usually also members of various clinical and research fellowship training programs at Tufts Medical Center. Financial support for participants’ tuition, stipend, fees and insurance are typically provided through federally-funded grants and other resources from within these fellowship training programs.

The fellowship stipends vary according to the post graduate levels of the participants and the available training funds. For matriculated master’s program students, the Sackler School usually covers a partial tuition scholarship for the difference between National Institutes of Health’s allotted tuition and the full-time Sackler School tuition cost.
