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, students choose a dissertation research mentor and enter one of nine PhD majors. In each program, students complete a dissertation based on their original research. Opportunities for career and professional development are integrated throughout the curriculum to enhance and expand learning experiences and promote leadership growth. Successful completion of the program averages about 4.5-5 years of full-time study.
