Our innovative curriculum educates students about the biomedical sciences, including topics ranging from genes and proteins to the complexity of human physiology and pathophysiology.
During the first year of study, our students complete several courses along with participating in journal club and laboratory rotations.
Students begin their full-time dissertation research at the beginning of their second year of the program.
The goal of the clinical program is to encourage students to develop perspective on how benchwork can be applied in the clinic.
Our students receive the most significant part of their training through the student-mentor relationship, culminating with the PhD dissertation.
