Transforming students...

Accepted students to the PhD Program enter through a general umbrella Biomedical Science program where they have great flexibility in charting their future. Their first year at Upstate includes core classes and three lab rotations, of the student's choosing, where they are exposed to a variety of research projects. The student then selects a mentor and becomes affiliated with a degree-granting program at the end of their first year. These degree-granting programs include Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Cell & Developmental Biology, Microbiology & Immunology, Neuroscience, Pharmacology, and Physiology.

Four programs in the College of Graduate Studies at Upstate Medical University offer MS degrees. Students enter these programs directly : Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Cell & Developmental Biology, Pharmacology, and Physiology.
