Graduate Education: Anatomy & Neurobiology Graduate Program

The education and training of the next generation of neuroscientists is one of the primary missions of the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology. Our graduate education program includes didactic coursework across the field of neuroscience, intensive and interactive seminar discussions, and ongoing journal clubs. Emphasis is placed on direct involvement in state-of-the-art laboratory research, and students are involved in research projects from the beginning of their graduate studies.

The Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology offers graduate training in the neurosciences in conjunction with the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program (INP) or Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). Having successfully completed the 1st year requirements of either the INP or MSTP program a student joins the Department program by selecting a member of the Anatomy and Neurobiology faculty as their thesis advisor.

Students are expected to graduate within five and a half years of entering the program. For guidance, a typical timeline showing requirements and responsibilities, a quick overview of a timeline and more info, check out the links in the left navigation bar.
