The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences offers a number of non-degree programs which aim to fill specific needs for high school, undergraduate, and post-graduate students. These programs include but are not limited to an intensive 10-week summer internship for undergraduates looking to increase their research experience and a federally-funded post baccalaureate research program and more.
Post Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP)
The Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) aims to increase the enrollment of underrepresented minority and disadvantaged students in PhD or MD/PhD programs and who will eventually pursue research careers in biomedicine.
Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)
The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is targeted to top-ranked undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing careers as physician-scientists (MD/PhD) or PhD research scientists
Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP)
The Clinical Research Training Programs are designed to foster the development of future leaders in patient orientated research. These training opportunities are intended to encourage the development of critical thinking necessary to conduct innovative hypothesis driven independent and collaborative translational research, in an effort to improve patient care and the well-being of society. In particular, we hope to enhance the research opportunities of clinical scientists as well as enhance the ability of basic scientists to better position themselves to translate the promise of their discoveries into the clinical arena, in a meaningful way with significant impact.
Advanced Certificate in Public Health
The Advanced Certificate in Public Health is a 15-credit course of study offering specialization in one of three areas: General Public Health, Outcomes Research and Global Health.
