Graduate programs offering Master of Science and doctoral training in the School of Medicine include:

  • Anatomy and neurobiology
  • Biochemistry
  • Biostatistics
  • Epidemiology (doctoral training only)
  • Healthcare policy and research (doctoral training only)
  • Human genetics
  • Medical physics
  • Microbiology and immunology
  • Neuroscience (doctoral training only)
  • Pharmacology and toxicology

The Department of Human and Molecular Genetics offers a Master of Science in Genetic Counseling and the Division of Epidemiology in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health offers the Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree. Both of these degree programs are accredited by the appropriate national organizations.

The Department of Human and Molecular Genetics offers a combined degree program that pairs the M.S. in Genetic Counseling and the Ph.D. in Human Genetics. The school partners with the School of Allied Health Professions to offer combined Anatomy and Neurobiology/physical therapy track and Physiology/physical therapy track Ph.D. programs.

Recognizing that graduate education should prepare students for a variety of career options, and that developments in the basic sciences have expanded the breadth of scholarship, the school has developed approaches to interdisciplinary education, particularly in the areas of neuroscience, molecular biology and genetics, immunology, and structural biology.

A two-semester post-baccalaureate certificate program offering training for students seeking admission to professional school (i.e., School of Medicine, School of Dentistry) is available as the Pre-medical Graduate Health Sciences Certificate.
