If you are interested in conducting pharmacology & toxicology research at MCW, we invite you to apply directly to the program, or to either our Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences (IDP) or the Neuroscience Doctoral Program (NDP).
- The Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology doctoral program at Medical College of Wisconsin provides diverse research opportunities in the areas of cardiovascular, cancer, and neuro sciences. An emphasis is placed on cellular and molecular pharmacology/toxicology and signal transduction.
- The primary objective of our program is to provide students with an academic background and exposure to state-of-the-art scientific approaches needed to investigate and solve the important biological problems that will be the focus of research in the decades to come.
- The coursework requirements of the doctoral program are flexible and tailored to the needs of individual students as much as possible.
- Typically, the first-year curriculum for doctoral students consists of a set of core courses covering the fundamentals of biochemistry, molecular genetics, molecular biology of the cell and cellular signal transduction.
- However, an alternative translational core curriculum is available with focus on organ system biology and translational science. Subsequently, students may take semester long graduate courses on pharmacological principles, receptors and second messengers, ion channels and drug discovery. The option to take a medical pharmacology course is available.
We are not aware of any English requirements for this programme.
- The objective of the graduate training program in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Medical College of Wisconsin is to train biomedical researchers for the 21st Century.
- Doctor of Philosophy; Master of Science (special arrangement only). These programs expose students to a variety of perspectives in biomedical research and allow exploration of multiple fields within the biomedical sciences before choosing a specific program for their dissertation.
- A Bachelor’s degree (either completed or in the process of completing) is required for admission to any MCW graduate program. Applicants will ideally have a 3.0 or higher grade point average (GPA).
