Undergraduate Minor

The online undergraduate minor in Medical Pharmacology is designed to educate undergraduate students in areas of medical pharmacology, including the research and discovery of new drugs, the biological drug targets in the body, the mechanisms of drug actions in treating diseases, the potential aversive drug effects, etc. The courses in the minor will benefit students planning to enter careers in medicine, medical research, medical technology, pharmacy, dentistry, nursing, and other professions related to medicine and healthcare.

PhD Programs

Graduate studies are primarily through The Ohio State Biochemistry Program (OSBP), which is administered jointly by the Department of Biological Chemistry and Pharmacology in the College of Medicine and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students study the biochemical basis of life and disease by conducting original research in world-class laboratories.

In addition to OSBP, our students and faculty participate in several other integrated graduate programs at Ohio State listed below.


Several National Institutes of Health (NIH) training grants along with a few Ohio State specialty programs give students the opportunity to receive funding while expanding on research and learning.
