Students gain real-world experience in an internship environment and are exposed to a breadth of course work in the field. Students will be able to pursue employment (e.g.in the biotech industry, research institutions, and government agencies), or further advanced degrees (e.g. PhD or MD).
Students are trained in conducting hypothesis-driven independent research including experimental design, analysis and interpretation of results, as well as scientific writing and presentation. At the conclusion of their studies, students are primed for research positions in the private and public sector and competitive PhD programs.
