Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program
The Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Sciences at the Florida State University College of Medicine trains students to answer important questions of medical relevance using cutting-edge approaches. A major strength of the Program is diversity of research questions and technical approaches — students have the opportunity to investigate a broad range of health and disease associated research topics from the perspective of individual molecules up to complex organismal functions. Every student accepted to the BMS Graduate program receives a dedicated laptop computer and is supported by a competitive stipend that covers living expenses, tuition, and matriculation costs.
The Florida State University Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences is committed to supporting the diversity of the graduate student body and promoting equal opportunity in higher education. Because our graduate students contribute to the global strength of future scholars and scientific leaders, we have a strong commitment to providing an environment that promotes a variety of ideas and perspectives essential to advancing a robust intellectual exchange that is essential to scientific training.
