Success Rates and Comparisons

Success Rates

UC's special master's program in physiology graduated its first class in 2007.  Though many of our students apply and get accepted during their year in our program, the success rate for admission of our graduates into professional schools is best illustrated after a "gap year". The table below provides success rates for graduates of the UC special master's program in physiology applying to medical or other professional school, by program year.  To our knowledge, we are one of the few programs of this type that actively track and report the success rates of our graduates in this fashion.  Please consult our alumni pages for specific information about our graduates and their career destination.
