The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program

The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program trains independent research scientists to enable them to bridge the wide gulfs that currently exist between basic science research and clinical medicine. Graduate students acquire a broad understanding of human disease, therapeutics and design of predictive experimental model systems through an innovative and rigorous program that integrates medical curriculum with mentored research and critical analysis of research-based modeling of human pathophysiology.

The program trains students pursuing a Ph.D. degree and is for any student with a B.S./B.A. or M.D. or is currently in an M.D. program.
