The Departments of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Immunology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Physiology offer graduate programs for the degree of doctor of philosophy. The Office of Research and Graduate Studies also offers the degree of doctor of philosophy in interdisciplinary biological sciences. The educational objectives of these doctoral programs are to foster scholarship, critical analysis, and creative research activity in a particular field of study. In selecting candidates for admission, admission committees give careful attention to individual aptitudes and career goals and design their curricula to complement the students’ baccalaureate experiences. Each candidate is encouraged to acquire a broad understanding of human biology in both health and disease and to gain authoritative knowledge in a specific area.
A master of science in biomedical sciences is offered through the Office of Research and Graduate Studies and a master of public health is offered through the Department of Public Health , along with three post-baccalaureate certificate programs (community health center administration , ethnic and rural health disparities , public health foundations and practice ) and a dual MD - MPH degree .
