One-of-a-Kind Program 

The Biomedical Sciences Training Program (BSTP) is an overarching program that offers a central entry point to a majority of the biomedical PhD programs offered at the School of Medicine. At the start, the program focuses on coursework in cell and molecular biology, while rotating through the labs of various faculty members with a wide range of research specialties. After completing the Fall semester in the BSTP, completing rotations, and learning more about our PhD programs and research laboratories, students enter one of the BSTP participating departments. Some programs have multiple tracks with core and specific coursework, so make sure to check out the research areas and highlights that are described on each program's website.
