Several factors are considered for admission into the PhD Program in Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine (CBRM), including academic achievement at an undergraduate college or university, performance on the GRE, previous research experience and potential for success in research. Applicants must possess, or expect to receive, a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university prior to matriculation in the College of Biomedical Sciences. The applicant is also required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). A solid background in the sciences is considered essential to success in the graduate program.
Once our staff at the Jefferson College of Biomedical Sciences (JCBS) receives the completed applications, we forward those prospective students with appropriate qualifications on for review to the Admissions Committee of CBRM. We then send requests to competitive applicants for interviews with the Program Director, members of the Admissions Committee and other program faculty. These applicants also meet with graduate students currently matriculated in the program.
After the interview process, the Admissions Committee submits a recommendation to the Program Director concerning the applicant's acceptability for admission into the graduate program. Approved candidates are recommended to the Dean of JCBS, who sends out letters of acceptance to the chosen candidates.
