Meyerhoff by the Numbers

Since 1993, the program has graduated over 1500 students. As of April 2024, the program has achieved the following results: 

  • Alumni from the program have earned 448 Ph.D.s, which includes 78 M.D./Ph.D.s, 1 DDS/Ph.D., and 1 D.V.M./Ph.D.  Our graduates have also earned over 160 M.D. or D.O. degrees, as well as over 330 master’s degrees, primarily in engineering, and computer science and related areas.  Meyerhoff graduates have received these degrees from such institutions as Harvard, Stanford, Duke, M.I.T., Berkeley, University of Michigan, Yale, Georgia Tech, Johns Hopkins, Carnegie Mellon, Rice, University of Pittsburgh, NYU, and the University of Maryland.
  • Over 70 alumni currently hold faculty appointments at universities including Duke University, University of Michigan, Stanford University, Spelman College, Johns Hopkins University, UMBC, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
  • Over 200 alumni are currently enrolled in graduate and professional degree programs.
  • An additional 249 students are currently enrolled in the program for the 2023-2024 academic year, of whom 70% are from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and 30% are from non-underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.
  • The program is having a dramatically positive impact on the number of minority students succeeding in STEM fields; students were 5.3 times more likely to have graduated from or be currently attending a STEM Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. program than those students who were invited to join the program but declined and attended another university.
