Graduate Training in Medical Science, Certificate
This program is only available to students currently enrolled in a PhD program in the Perelman School of Medicine.
The Graduate Training in Medical Science (GTMS) Certificate Program complements our existing doctoral programs in Biomedical Graduate Studies. The GTMS program was specifically designed for students who want to explore human biology and pursue research training at the interface of basic science and medicine. The GTMS program augments graduate training by offering courses that bridge basic and medical science and provides a foundation in the molecular basis of disease.
The GTMS program currently consists of 6 courses (4 required and 2 electives) and a 40 hour clinical clerkship experience. The curriculum requirements change from time to time to keep the program up to date and meeting the student needs.
