Graduate Education

Training Programs

Graduate education is a major focus of the educational mission of the Schools within the Health Science Center. For the student, it represents not only learning a new body of knowledge but also learning the skills to conduct research to acquire new knowledge to benefit future generations.

  • Behavioral and Biomedical Sciences

    The Behavioral and Biomedical Sciences training plan incorporates core coursework in behavioral neuroscience methods, epidemiology, biostatistics and informatics. Research training and experiential learning activities develop critical thinking and leadership skills. Unique to this program is the opportunity for clinical shadowing to highlight the translational potential of behavioral and neuroscience research.
