IBS Curriculum Overview

Each course in the IBS curriculum presents concepts central to understanding key advances in the biomedical sciences.

In addition to the six didactic courses, the statistics course and the ethics course, students in IBS complete four laboratory rotations chosen among faculty in any of the participating basic science departments. Students also participate in the research seminars and journal clubs of the department in which they rotate.

The IBS curriculum includes 10 credit hours in fall semester and 10 credit hours in spring semester.
