The primary mission of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is educating students committed to the advancement of knowledge in contemporary areas of the biomedical sciences. This mission is accomplished through intellectually challenging didactic courses and unparalleled mentored research experiences in a plethora of contemporary areas of biomedical research areas. A compelling aspect of graduate education in a health science center environment is the opportunity for graduate students to interface with clinician scientists with diverse technological skill-sets, conceptual capabilities and translational perspectives.
Graduate studies leading to a Doctor of Philosophy degree programs provide didactic and mentored experiential opportunities for graduate students to develop a compelling expertise in a variety of specialized fields of study, to attain excellence in the conduct of research, and to gain both understandings and experience in the interdisciplinary nature of the biomedical sciences. Dual degree programs such as the MD/PhD and DDS/PhD programs are offered in conjunction with the Medical School and Dental School, respectively. A unique MD Residency/PhD program is offered through the Radiological Sciences program.
