The Biosciences has emerged as an enormously interdisciplinary endeavor, with major contributions routinely arising from the collaboration of areas traditionally viewed as discrete disciplines. Each Home Program sets its own curriculum, but many courses are taught by groups of faculty from multiple programs and departments. Students within the same Home Program may take different courses that best match their needs and backgrounds. This flexibility ensures that all students obtain the best possible training for pursuing careers in their areas of interest.
Some Home Programs have additional requirements, such as research talks or journal clubs, to help you gain presentation skills or broaden your scientific knowledge. Requirements vary, so you should consult your Home Program's handbook or advisor for specific details.
