Program structure and duration
The standard MD program structure requires students to complete 2 years of coursework and classroom learning before undertaking 2 years of work rotation in a clinical setting (eg hospital).

Both students prepare to diagnose patients and practice clinical medicine.
The standard doctoral program lasts 5-7 years and requires students to conduct their own research (supervised by a supervisor). A doctorate requires the introduction of new knowledge which will lead to the advancement of knowledge in your field of research. With the exception of some clinical doctorates, a doctorate alone is not enough to prescribe medication.
A research degree focuses on in-depth exploration of a topic. A research degree gives students the opportunity to conduct their own unique research on a topic of their choice to create their own research papers and innovative knowledge studies.
A research degree prepares students with the skills and experience needed to work and research in academia, government and business.
