Case Western Reserve University has joined other research universities and a major cancer institute as part of the Coalition for Next Generation Life Science. The coalition's aim is to give would-be life scientists clear, standardized data on graduate school admissions, education and training opportunities, and career prospects. This standardization assists students in making informed decisions. A list of all members of the Coalition can be found on their website.
Visit each page for detailed statistics on:
- admissions and matriculation data of PhD students
- average time-to-degree and completion data for PhD programs
- demographics of PhD students by gender, underrepresented minority status, and citizenship status
