PhD/MSBS Programs

The mission of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Icahn School of Medicine is to provide rigorous training in basic science, as well as in patient and population-based research, which will prepare our students for leadership roles in scientific discovery, clinical innovation, science education and health policy.  The Graduate School offers PhD, MD/PhD and Master’s degrees in Biomedical Sciences, Public Health, Genetic Counseling and Clinical Research.  PhD training is offered in eight multidisciplinary training areas, each of which represents an area of intense focus and growth for our basic science community.  The Graduate School forms an integral part of the Medical School and its close proximity to Mount Sinai Hospital, enables students enrolled in one of the above-noted programs, to have a unique opportunity to train in an environment which promotes translational research and collaboration among cutting-edge laboratories.  Additionally, the Graduate School’s location in New York City allows students to carry out collaborative projects with other top-ranked institutions located in the metropolitan area and enroll in courses offered by those institutions.  Lastly, with a keen eye on the explosion of our knowledge in areas, such as genomics and neuroscience and the demand for new therapies and drug discoveries, the curriculum in the Graduate School is reflecting current needs and trends.
