The BSB theme encourages applications from students interested in receiving a degree in biomedical sciences. Individuals committed to obtaining a graduate education in biomedical sciences are urged to apply. Applications are strongly encouraged from individuals with previous work experience, a master's degree in related area, or a professional degree such as the M.D., D.M.D., D.V.M. or O.D. 

Applications will be reviewed by the Graduate Biomedical Sciences Admissions Committee. Acceptance will be based on undergraduate performance (both the curriculum and grade point average), letters of recommendation, GRE scores, a personal statement of research interests, performance in other graduate programs or research activities and, if possible, a personal interview.
