Entrance Requirements

The Integrated Physiology Program seeks highly motivated students with the strong backgrounds in quantitative sciences and a passion for biomedical research.

GPA and Test Scores (optional) | The average undergraduate GPA of accepted students is 3.40. If you are submitting GRE scores, take the exam no later than October so that their scores will be available to the Program.

Coursework and Research | Students seeking admission should have taken Organic Chemistry, Biology, General Physics, and college level mathematics through Calculus. Courses in Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, Genetics and Physiology are recommended. Research experience is strongly recommended. Students with excellent records and research experience who lack specific courses are encouraged to apply. Where additional course-work is necessary to provide background of sufficient depth for our rigorous curriculum, supplemental courses or reading programs can be designed.
