With 15 master’s programs, an interdisciplinary doctoral program, a comprehensive MD-PhD program, and undergraduate research, you have more than options here — you have opportunity.
The PhD Program in Biomedical Sciences (PPBS) allows you to experience different fields of research and laboratories before selecting a specialty area.
This program provides an entry portal and a common first-year curriculum, equipping you with core knowledge and concepts to support your pursuit of a doctoral degree in one of our several participating disciplines.
If you have a strong background or interest in one of our Direct Admission Programs, you can apply directly through the department.
All programs except Medical Physics also participate in the PPBS. If you want to explore different disciplines (including these options) before selecting one for your doctoral research, apply through the PPBS.
Our discipline-specific master’s programs offer you a specialized focus in one of 14 biomedical disciplines.
Most programs require a research project that culminates in a thesis, leaving you well-prepared for pursuit of a doctoral degree or immediate entry into a scientific career. You’ll learn from faculty mentors who are engaged in cutting-edge research within their fields and collaboratively across disciplines.
Our Interdisciplinary Program was designed to provide you with the experiences and curriculum you need to help you prepare for the next step in your education.
Our Natural Sciences Interdisciplinary Master’s Program gives you a broad overview of the biomedical sciences so you can shape your education based on your interests and goals — whether you are seeking a future in a health profession or a career in research.
Earn your MD-PhD through a single, well-integrated curriculum that prepares you to work as a clinical translational scientist.
You can conduct your research and earn your doctoral degree in any of our participating departments, programs or partner institutions.
Our program provides you with research experience in a state-of-the-art biomedical research laboratory as a prelude to pursuing a doctoral degree. At the end of our program, you’ll know if a biomedical research science career is right for you.
