Anatomy

Biochemistry

Clinical Research

Human Genetics

Microbiology-Immunology

Pharmacology

Students are encouraged to review the departmental websites for more information by clicking the above links.


Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

Students are awarded a Doctor of Philosophy based on academic achievements in combination with superior research as measured by contribution to a particular field of thought. Students enrolled in the Ph.D program generally pursue a higher level of education to accompany them in future careers in academia and industry. The student is expected to complete rigorous course requirements within two full years of graduate study and complete a dissertation by the fourth year.

M.D./Ph.D and Physician Scientist Program

The Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences offers two tracks for individual who wish to pursue a Ph.D. as part of their medical degree.  Please visit our M.D./Ph.D. section for more information

Joint Degrees

Combined M.S.P.H/Ph.D.

The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences offer a combined degree program in which students can earn a Master of Science in Public Health and Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Sciences. Graduate Students enrolled in the combined degree program take classes in both Public Health and Biomedical Sciences, including courses overlapping both fields. Each program is designed on an individual basis with the student, Biomedical Sciences Program, School of Public Health and the students' dissertation advisor.


Combined M.S./Ph.D.

The department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences offer a combined degree program in which graduate students earn a Master of Science Degree in Biomedical Sciences and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Chemical Engineering.

The combined degree provides graduate students with a strong theoretical and research background in both engineering and the biological sciences. This unique education is designed to prepare future bioengineers and biotechnologists to work in a discipline that is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary. It is at the interface between engineering and the biological sciences where many of the breakthroughs in these two fields occur.

Graduate students enrolled in the combined degree program take classes in both chemical engineering and biomedical sciences, including courses designed to integrate these two fields. Their doctoral research is in the area of bioengineering or biotechnology and done under the director of a chemical engineering faculty who is also a member of the biomedical sciences program. No tuition waivers or stipends from the biomedical sciences program are available for students in the M.S. program. For more information on this program, please contact Professor Kim O'Connor.
