The curriculum integrates basic science content more closely with clinical context, provides clinical exposure earlier and reinforces basic science content in clinical rotations.
Medical Science (PhD)
The Doctorate of Philosophy in Medical Science program provides cutting-edge research training with a flexible and interdisciplinary curriculum with six focus tracks (biochemistry & structural biology, cardiovascular and lymphatic biology, cell and molecular biology, clinical and translational science, microbial pathogenesis & immunology and neurosciences) that allow students a highly personalized training program.
Medical Science (MS)
The Graduate Program in Medical Science provides a broad background in basic sciences with focus on applications of this background to medical problems with six focus tracks (biochemistry & structural biology, cardiovascular and lymphatic biology, cell and molecular biology, clinical and translational science, microbial pathogenesis & immunology and neurosciences).
Education for Healthcare Professionals (MS)
Students in the master’s program, which is designed to develop skills to become excellent teachers in their areas of specialty, may pick a 36-hour non-thesis track that requires a project, or students can complete 34 hours with a thesis.
