Our commitment to upholding the highest standards in academics is an important element in attracting the brightest minds from across the globe to our campus. Flexibility is another one: all 14 programs within PIBS feature common course elements and electives, making it possible for first-year students to change their Ph.D. program affiliation. The combination of these elements creates the freedom to follow your passion and receive the finest possible training in the biomedical sciences.
Diversity Makes Better Science
The University of Michigan is committed to diversity and strives to create an academic community that is representative of the global society. Our research is composed of scientists from all cultural, ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic backgrounds. PIBS values the contributions of this diverse group, not only as they impact our scientists-in-training, but also for the real potential that their work can improve the health of traditionally underrepresented and disadvantaged populations around the world.
The end result is that we have a learning environment that supports all of our students as they pursue their studies.
