Students are required to complete a set of core courses in addition to the courses outlined in a curricular training track of their choice. Each track is geared towards students interested in the field of biomedical sciences to prepare them for careers in academia, pharmaceutical and private industry, and state and federal research institutions. As a part of their degree, students will need to complete a set of three core courses, one required course for their track, and recommended electives geared towards their track. Students will develop and pursue individually tailored course curricula to provide them with a broad knowledge of biomedical sciences, as well as a focus on areas of relevance to their respective research projects. Below is a summary of each of the track to assist students in deciding on which track to follow during their program.
