The goal of the IDP is to prepare students for a diversity of careers in research and teaching in academic and commercial settings, after completion of the Ph.D. in Medical Sciences. The program provides a modern, comprehensive graduate education in biomedical sciences while providing both maximum program flexibility and appropriate specialization for advanced training. The IDP represents a cooperative effort of six interdisciplinary advanced concentrations with participation of over 250 faculty members. The advanced concentration curricula are flexible enough to allow students to integrate course work offered in other advanced concentrations. In addition, journal clubs and seminars associated with their research interests allow students to further augment their scientific development. Prospective students should have strong backgrounds in biology including genetics, chemistry (organic, quantitative, and biochemistry), physics, and calculus. Demonstrated high motivation and a serious intention to pursue research-related careers are also important considerations.
