Through the combination of our rigorous curriculum and experiential learning opportunities, students emerge from our program with the skills and knowledge they need to take the next step in their development. That could include earning further academic or medical degrees, working in biomedical research organizations and government positions, teaching or other careers for which they are both well-suited and well-prepared.
During their graduate studies, students are expected to prepare themselves for career exploration and direction. Our faculty provide students with guidance and advice in this area – including by facilitating access to scientists and professionals who visit the campus or who are known by faculty through professional networks – although it remains primarily the student’s responsibility to explore available options.
The Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences has an impressive track record of preparing students for challenging and rewarding careers.
