The Biomedical Sciences PhD program trains students in an undifferentiated program that provides the opportunity to select one of seven PhD degree-granting programs.
Graduate education in the Biomedical Sciences at West Virginia University offers you the unique opportunity to explore multiple disciplines and areas of research in the biomedical sciences but to also fast track into a dissertation laboratory and a graduate program within one semester. The Ph.D. programs in the Biomedical Sciences share a common admission’s process. Once admitted, students enter in the undifferentiated Biomedical Sciences program and pursue a common core curriculum in the first semester. You will rotate through 3 laboratories during the fall semester to select a dissertation advisor. To learn more about these programs click through the navigation. While many of these programs are closely aligned with Basic Science departments, faculty across departments can be members of multiple graduate programs. The Prospective Students’ link provides information on application, interviewing, the financial package, and core curriculum.
