Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences Committees

Council of Academic Chairs

The Council of Academic Chairs consists of the College of Medicine basic science department chairpersons and the chair of the Oral Biology Department of the College of Dentistry, and is chaired by the Associate Dean for Graduate Education. This council advises the associate dean in overall policy decisions for the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences, including policies that relate to education quality such as changes in the curriculum and enrollment of faculty from other Colleges into the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences. The council meets as required.

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.
