On completion of the IBS Curriculum, students select their doctoral degree program based on research interests and mentoring relationships in one of five departments: Anatomy and Neurobiology; Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics; Molecular and Biomedical Pharmacology; Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry; and Physiology. Please refer to these departments for information about their Ph.D. programs.
Successful students in the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Curriculum have typically completed an undergraduate degree in chemistry, biology, biochemistry, engineering, mathematics, neurosciences, physics, pharmacy or psychology. Undergraduate course work in organic chemistry, physical chemistry, calculus, physics, and the biological sciences is highly recommended.
Admission to IBS is based upon academic background, GPA, professional recommendations, performance on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and prior experience. Personal interviews are strongly encouraged. Students must meet the admissions requirements set by the Graduate School, including a bachelor's degree from a fully accredited institution of higher learning.
