  • Description:
  • Doctoral Program in Pharmacology & Toxicology

    The program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree requires approximately four to five years of training. The doctoral program provides:

    • knowledge, insight and skills that students need to make profound contributions as independent scientists, as well as to achieve prominent roles in academia, government and industry
    • A learning environment that is nurturing, intellectually challenging and personally rewarding
    • An enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and diverse faculty, who have made significant contributions in their fields of expertise
    • Modern, state-of-the-art facilities that support a breadth of research interests and valuable hands-on experience.
    The program consists of course work which presents the basic principles of medical biology, pharmacology and toxicology, and training in research and the scientific method. It is important to us that each student has the opportunity to reach their individual potential pursuing the research that is important to them.

    Most students undertake their doctoral dissertation research in the laboratory of a faculty member within the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. However, students have the option to conduct their research in any active laboratory on campus which significantly expands the opportunities of the student for in-depth study in the discipline of pharmacology and toxicology.

    Students may also acquire a Specialization in Environmental Toxicology through the addition of specific coursework. A Dual Degree MD/PhD program with the Colleges of Human Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine or Veterinary Medicine is also available.
