Medical Neuroscience, Ph.D.

The first requirement for the Ph.D. in Medical Neuroscience is the completion of several core courses and seminars. Students must pass a Qualifying Examination covering the concepts and research skills presented in the core curriculum. After entering a specific laboratory to engage in a formal research project, a Dissertation Proposal in NIH grant format is evaluated in written form and defended orally in front of the Research Committee. Finally, the dissertation resulting from the student's original research must be presented and defended in a formal seminar. [IUSM_Med_Neuro_Student-Faculty_Handbook.2010(1).pdf]
