All students participate in a core curriculum of
academic courses for the first year. This is comprised of a series of lectures and laboratories that encompass basic
molecular and cellular biology and the molecular mechanisms of human disease. Additional elective coursework and two
to three research laboratory rotations are tailored to the student's individual research interests. The student also
has the option of participating in an industrial or government research entity.
At the beginning of the second year, students select a laboratory and begin work on their independent research
project. A student may choose from approximately forty participating laboratories directed by faculty members that
conduct research in the following general focus areas: Cardiovascular & Lipid Disorders, Digestive & Kidney
Disease, Endocrine, Metabolic, & Bone Disorders, Hematology/Oncology and Immunology & Infectious Diseases.
Since an individual research project may span more than one focus area, the student's thesis committee will also
recommend attendance at select clinical and research seminars in the focus area(s) which are likely to complement
the student's research activities. The completion of all requirements for the Ph.D. degree generally takes five
