All IBMG students complete the following required courses
GRDM-G715 Biomedical Science I. Biochemical Basis of Biological Processes (3 credits)
GRDM-G716 Biomedical Science II. Molecular Biology and Genetics (3 credits)
GRDM-G717 Biomedical Science III. Cellular Basis of Systems Biology (3 credits)
GRDM-G718 Research in Biomedical Science (first rotation) (2 credits). Course is held in the last eight weeks of the fall semester.
GRDM-G655 Skills – Research Communications Seminar (1 credit)
GRDM-G718 Research in Biomedical Science (2nd and 3rd rotations; 2 credits each) (4 credits)
As part of the second semester, students select courses consistent with their likely PhD program(s) from a modular curriculum.
At the end of the first year, laboratory assignments are made and PhD students choose a lab and program offered by the biomedical program. Students complete a research project along with the requirements of the selected degree program. View the Lab Rotation Mentor Agreement.
After joining a program, all PhD students are required to complete two additional courses as part of the IBMG program. In the fall of the second year, all IBMG students take a research ethics course and an experimental design/biostatistics course: GRDM-G855 Experimental Design and Biostatistics (1 credit) and GRDM-G505 Responsible Conduct of Research (1 credit). All courses that begin with “G” are in the GRDM department code (Graduate Medicine.
