Thank you for your interest in the graduate program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Miami. We feel that our department provides an excellent opportunity of training for your future career in scientific research. Our faculty places a very high priority on graduate training. We strive to recruit the most capable students and to motivate them to develop independent research skills that will make them competitive with students trained anywhere in the world.
The Office of Graduate Studies (OGS) is responsible for administering all graduate programs at the Miller School of Medicine. All students will apply to a new "Programs in Biomedical Science" (PIBS). All entering students will be "uncommitted" during their first year and will be able to choose from among eight biomedical graduate programs (including Biochemistry and Molecular Biology). This new system only affects the entry process and the first year in graduate school. Doctoral degrees will continue to be awarded in specific disciplines (such as Biochemistry and Molecular Biology). You will find all information regarding the online application process and forms at this website: www.biomed.miami.edu.
Applications will be reviewed by the PIBS Admissions Committee.
