Graduate School Bulletin - Spring 2005

ANATOMY

Graduate study in anatomy and neurobiology is designed to prepare candidates for research careers in academics, industry, and government laboratories. Admission to the graduate program is competitive and is based upon academic background, professional recommendations, performance on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), experience, and when possible, personal interviews. Students should have completed an undergraduate degree in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, neurosciences, physics, pharmacy or psychology. Some students who have already completed an M.D. or D.M.D. degree may be interested in obtaining specific training in anatomy and neurobiology in order to complete their professional education. For traditional students with only an undergraduate degree, undergraduate courses in organic chemistry, physical chemistry, calculus, physics, and the biological sciences are highly recommended.

Students will have the opportunity to join faculty research programs across a spectrum of topics including: neuroendocrinology and reproductive biology, development and aging in the nervous system, neurodegeneration and regeneration, and neurochemistry. The program of study is tailored to the individual background and career goals of the student and stresses an interdepartmental approach both in the selection of courses and in the pursuit of research. Students are expected to participate in graduate seminars, journal clubs, research seminars; to interact with visiting scholars; and to present the results of their research at local and national meetings. Financial aid is available for highly qualified students.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the Ph.D. program in Anatomy and Neurobiology is through the Integrated Biomedical Sciences (IBS) Curriculum. Inquiries regarding admission should be directed to the Director, Integrated Biomedical Sciences Curriculum, University of Kentucky College of Medicine. For information about the Ph.D. program in Anatomy and Neurobiology, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology. Information may also be obtained from the department Web site: <www.mc.uky.edu/neurobiology/>.
