At Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, you have the opportunity to pursue a PhD or combined MD/PhD degree in the biomedical sciences. In either academic track, our PhD candidates enroll in an open program composed of six broad areas that are categorized into focused training disciplines.
In our program, you wait to select a training discipline until you’ve taken several courses, completed two or three laboratory rotations, and selected a faculty mentor for your PhD thesis. Our flexible curriculum allows you to explore a range of disciplines before choosing a research focus.
Our curriculum for the spring 2021 semester will be offered virtually.
