Graduate Students

The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program was created to develop a broad understanding of the complex interactions of human biological systems to prepare students for successful careers in biomedical research. The program takes an interdisciplinary approach that transcends the traditional disciplinary boundaries and divisions characteristic of biomedical science education of the past. More than 300 graduate faculty members are affiliated with the Program.  The curriculum is efficient and rigorous and includes individual instruction that focuses on the student’s choice of an area of research emphasis. Students are supported as Fellows or Graduate Research Associates throughout their time in the Program.
The OSU and Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) MED into GRAD Scholars Program is designed to prepare predoct​oral students to conduct research at the interface of biomedical science and clinical medicine. Trainees are expected to expedite the clinical application of discoveries in biomedical science to improve human health and to create future successful research partnerships with physicians. ​​​​
