The Neuroscience Doctoral Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin provides the motivated student with superior training in Neuroscience research while allowing for flexibility in the choice of research area and coursework. The faculty of the Neuroscience program comes form 11 basic science and clinical science departments and all lead nationally-funded research programs.
The goal of the Neuroscience Doctoral Program is to provide students with the knowledge, laboratory skills, critical thinking and communication abilities that are essential for a successful career in Neuroscience research.
All accepted students received full stipends and do not pay tuition, affording full-time graduate studies and research. This training program positions students competitively for post-graduate opportunities including postdoctoral training, teaching and work as independent investigators.
Collaborations among laboratories are strongly encouraged, further supporting our multidisciplinary approach to research and problem solving. Each doctoral candidate in the Neuroscience Doctoral Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin, becomes part of our team of scientists committed to understanding how the nervous system functions, how it develops and ages, as well as what causes disorders and how to treat them.
