The Division of Biomedical Sciences at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine has a rich tradition of high-impact research on medically relevant topics, student-centered teaching excellence and a service within the academic community.

Our faculty members are well-known in their areas of research specialization and support and foster scientific synergy between faculty researchers, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and support staff.

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.
