Message from the Dean
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Medical College of Wisconsin provides a world-class environment for graduate study and research training for degree seeking students wishing to study health-related sciences. We endeavor to foster a rich and stimulating academic culture in which the next generation of scientists and health professionals are trained to meet the complex challenges of the 21st century. To reflect the increasing diversity of the healthcare and biomedical science professions, our goal is to provide an educational environment that seamlessly integrates basic research and scholarship, clinically oriented research, applied learning, and community-based programs.
Medical College of Wisconsin faculty secures nearly $166 million in research dollars annually and lead 23 nationally recognized research centers. Within this rich research environment, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences offers 10 PhD and 6 Master's degree programs, as well as several graduate certificate programs for individuals in all stages of career development. The wide range of research accomplished by our students is demonstrated throughout the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center.
If you are considering MCW for graduate school, we welcome and encourage you to consider one of our degree programs in the near future, joining the ranks of some of the most talented scientists in their respective fields. To explore a myriad of research opportunities for their PhD dissertation work, prospective students may choose between three umbrella programs: the Graduate Program in Physiology, the Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences or the Neuroscience Doctoral Program. Students aspiring to earn a PhD with an interest in epidemiological studies or theoretical statistics can matriculate into Public and Community Health or the Biostatistics graduate programs respectively.
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences degree programs offer an intellectually challenging and enriching educational experience with innovative research opportunities for every student. Our one-to-one student-to- faculty ratio allows for individual mentoring, and provides structured support to students throughout their graduate school or professional training. We pride ourselves on the collegial relationships that exist between faculty and the students
I invite you to read about our graduate programs and to contact us for additional information. Graduate study at the College presents an excellent opportunity for intellectual growth and the development of research skills in the biomedical sciences and healthcare fields. We hope you will consider The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Medical College of Wisconsin as your preferred institution for graduate study.
