Our graduate programs lead to the awarding of a Master's degree or Ph.D. degree (including combined M.D./Ph.D.). Students conduct research in a specific area of microbiology or immunology and are prepared for careers in a variety of settings. Degree requirements include successful completion of course work and submission and defense of a dissertation based on original research carried out under the supervision of a department faculty member.
The Department sponsors two modules in the new School of Medicine curriculum. The Inflammation & Immunity (I2) module (CORE 810) is taught in the Fall semester of the first year. The Infectious Diseases (ID) module (CORE 850) is taught in the Fall semester of the second year. These modules convey the core graduation competencies of the undergraduate M.D. program.
