M.S. and Ph.D.

  • Medical Science

    The Graduate Program in Medical Science, provides a broad background in basic sciences with focus on applications of this background to medical problems. Students may earn an M.S. or Ph.D. The research emphasis is in the interdisciplinary studies that has six potential research areas: Biochemistry & Structural Biology, Cardiovascular Science & Lymphatic Biology, Cell & Molecular Biology, Clinical & Molecular Pathogenesis, Microbial & Molecular Pathogenesis, and Neuroscience.

  • Education for Healthcare Professionals

    The Master of Science program in Education for Healthcare Professionals provides the training necessary to produce effective leaders in health professions education. Accordingly, the program recruits health professionals who have, or are preparing for, educational leadership positions but who lack formal training in education and/or leadership.


Dual Degrees

Students complete the M.D. program’s two years of basic medical science (M1 and M2) and two years of clinical science (M3 and M4), but with the Ph.D. portion (three to four years of graduate studies) undertaken after either the completion of the M2 or M3 year, returning to the medical curriculum after the Ph.D. portion is complete.
