Apply to the Program in Pharmacology

The procedures for admission to the graduate Program in Pharmacology are described on the Graduate Medical Sciences admissions page. Applicants must submit the online application form that includes a statement of purpose. Students are encouraged to arrange for submission of official transcripts as well as two letters of recommendation well in advance of the due date of Dec. 1, which is when the application portal will close. GRE scores are not required for application to the graduate program and the absence of such scores will not adversely affect consideration of any applicant. However, students may submit GRE scores at their sole discretion.

Students often ask about the criteria for admission.  In addition to strong performance in academic coursework, most successful applicants will provide evidence of prior laboratory research experience and strong rationale for their decision to apply for predoctoral training in the Program in Pharmacology.

Applications are reviewed by the Admissions Committee and invitations for a formal interview will be extended to the most promising candidates.  A personal interview is required for applicants to the PhD and MD-PhD programs, and applicants to the MA program are also encouraged to visit. Applicants are encouraged to carefully review the research interests of program faculty prior to submitting their applications and indicate any faculty members they would like to meet with in person.  Following interviews, applicants will be notified of admissions decisions by the Department Chair and the Associate Provost of Graduate Medical Sciences.
