Thomas M. Hyde, M.D., Ph.D. attended the University of Pennsylvania as an undergraduate, where he received a B.A. in Biology, Summa cum Laude, in 1978.  In 1984, he earned a joint M.D.-Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and was recognized as the outstanding clinician-researcher in his class.  Following a general medical internship at the University of Pennsylvania-Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia in 1984, Dr. Hyde completed a residency in Neurology at Stanford University Hospital, serving as Chief Resident in his final year at Stanford.  Dr. Hyde then moved on to the National Institute of Mental Health, where he worked as a clinician and basic science researcher from 1988-2010 in the Clinical Brain Disorders Branch.
