  • Health Insurance – All graduate students receive free individual health insurance. The Einstein student health insurance will begin on the start date of the PhD program (August 1, 2016).
  • Employment Eligibility Verification- Because all students perform services, that is, they are required to conduct thesis research in the laboratory as part of their curriculum training, and receive stipends and benefits, they are required to demonstrate employment eligibility verification. Therefore, students entering the PhD program will be required to complete a Form 1-9, documenting proof of identity and applicable work authorization at the time of matriculation. Until a student obtains proper work authorization: 1. Student cannot be paid, 2. Student cannot conduct any research or perform any services for the College. Additionally, student cannot be paid retroactively for any time during which the student did not have proper work authorization.
