The Biomedical Science Programs through the Wayne State University School of Medicine provide outstanding graduate education, student interaction and research opportunities across all of our programs. With focus on career development and research training, our academic programs help graduate students increase their chances for future success in their chosen areas of study.
Preparing you for your future as an independent researcher is the primary role of the Office of Graduate Scholars, the departmental training program and your faculty mentor. All three work together to assist students in career development, obtaining job contacts and travel to national meetings. Outstanding training coupled with career placement is the key to your successful postgraduate opportunities.
At least 85% accepted postdoctoral positions in some of the country's most prestigious research institutions. Many of our graduates are now working as research and teaching faculty at colleges and universities nationwide. Others graduates serve in government (NIH), industry, and biotechnology. The remainder continue at professional schools (medicine, law) or go directly into non-research teaching jobs. More than 20% hold faculty positions.
