Graduate College of Biomedical Sciences

The GCBS will train highly skilled, dedicated and caring biomedical researchers and future practitioners for entry into academia, industry or the medical professions. To that end, the GCBS strives to graduate humanistic professionals who will produce new biomedical knowledge and practice their healthcare professions with a deeper and broader understanding of the dynamic sciences underlying the treatment of patients.

Michel BaudryMessage from the Dean


Scientific advances are moving at an unprecedented pace and it is now conceivable to think that the next generation of graduate students will revolutionize the way diseases are going to be treated as well as the way health care is going to be delivered. The Graduate College of Biomedical Sciences (GCBS) is committed to train this next generation of students and to provide them the experience, background and skills they will need to be the leaders in this revolution.
