Einstein’s extraordinary graduate experience produces independent biomedical scientists capable of carrying out significant, award-winning scientific work to improve the health and well- being of humankind.
Our Ph.D. program now boasts over 1,200 graduates employed in a wide range of academic scientific careers, as well as in non-academic settings worldwide.
You apply directly to our PhD program, not to a specific department. This allows you to gain exposure many areas of research before making an informed decision about your thesis work.
The first year integrates three intensive team-based course blocks (courses range from one to eight weeks) with three full-time laboratory rotations that immerse students as active members in the science, culture, and daily activity of the lab. Students declare a laboratory for thesis at the end of the first year.
Our graduate program is known for its high level of personalized mentoring. You choose a mentor who will guide you through your research, and an advisory committee to provide additional perspective and feedback to guide you through your thesis work.
You are part of an open-door environment where you are encouraged to share information and resources with fellow students and faculty.
You work with students and faculty from a variety of disciplines across the institution. Our students are known for their unique ability to develop novel, cross-disciplinary areas of investigation.
You meet regularly with the Directors of the Graduate Division at a variety of gatherings and develop an individualized curriculum based on your scientific background, interests, and goals.
