Find your “Fit for Life” in one of our nine exciting Biomedical Science PhD programs.
Become a leader in biomedical sciences
We equip students with the resources needed to become independent biomedical researchers, and further prepare them to become leaders in their fields.
Students are admitted via a common admissions process to the biomedical sciences PhD program, not to a specific major. After completing first-year core course work and laboratory rotations, the student chooses a dissertation research mentor and enters one of nine PhD majors based on that faculty member’s program affiliation. In each program, students complete a PhD dissertation based on original research.
An affordable education
Students accepted into the Biomedical Sciences PhD program are eligible to receive a Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA) appointment which provides:
- a competitive stipend ($25,500/year)
- a reduced tuition rate of $25/semester
- student health insurance coverage
