BMSM 3510, 3520 Life in Biomedical Research I (Fall) & II (Spring) ()


Credits: BMSM 3510 - 2 credits, BMSM 3520 - 2 credits

Course Description:

Life in Biomedical Research I & II jointly constitute a professional development course designed to introduce new students to aspects of science and a career in science not covered explicitly in other courses – e.g., learning about the different careers available to the scientist, oral presentation skills, data analysis and figure preparation, philosophy of science, basic grant writing (NIH F30/F31-style fellowships), and networking/communication skills. Broadly speaking, the overall goal of this course is to introduce students to what “they don’t know that they don’t know” about pursuing a career in research or other areas of science.

Prerequisites: This course is required for all Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., and Master’s students enrolled in Track B.

Lectures: 1 hour/week. Letter-graded.
