FIRST YEAR COURSEWORK


Students entering through any of the eight themes in the Graduate Biomedical Sciences will have several common courses throughout their first year, including basic biosciences, biostatistics, and ethics. Intermingled with these common courses will be theme-specific courses. Lab rotations are unique to the individual, although everyone's rotations begin and end at the same time.

 

For the students entering in Fall 2016, the tentative lab rotation schedule is as follows:

  • 1st Lab Rotation - 15 August through 14 October 2016
         
  • 2nd Lab Rotation - 17 October through 16 December 2016
         
  • 3rd Lab Rotation - 9 January through 10 March 2017
         
  • 4th Lab Rotation - 13 March through 12 May 2017


NOTES: Students making a C or lower (considered a failure) in any course must retake and pass the course the following year. Any student receiving two C's (or more) are subject to being dismissed by the program.
