Graduate Studies Committee

The Graduate Studies Committee is a panel of faculty that acts as the judicial board for students in the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences. This panel reviews student progress in courses, research, and professionalism and applies the regulations of the program and university to individual student cases. This panel also determines the status of students who wish to enter the program with advanced standing. This committee reports directly to the Associate Dean for Graduate Education.
