Nutrition and Metabolism

MS and PhD Graduate Programs


Nutrition and Metabolism is an interdisciplinary graduate program based at Boston University School of Medicine. We offer small classes and a diverse medical school faculty of research scientists and clinicians.


The MS in Nutrition and Metabolism degree program prepares students for future studies in medicine and dentistry or for future doctoral-level studies. The MS degree also prepares graduates for careers in clinical, epidemiologic, or laboratory-based scientific research.


The PhD program in Nutrition and Metabolism is a part of the integrated Programs in Biomedical Sciences (PiBS). The year one core curriculum is completed jointly with other PhD program while intensive studies in nutrition and metabolism begin in year two. The PhD program prepares graduates for diverse careers in nutrition science, research, and teaching in a wide range of settings including academia, industry, and the government.
