Northwestern University offers several options in PhD training related to the biological sciences. Learn more via the links below.
- IBiS - Interdepartmental Biological Sciences Program
The Interdepartmental Biological Science Program (IBiS) is a sister program to the DGP and is located on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University. Under the Northwestern University Life and Biomedical Sciences (NULaBS) umbrella, students in both programs can pursue coursework and laboratory rotations on either campus and take full advantage of the impressive array of resources available across all of Northwestern. Faculty from both campuses are collected in research clusters that unite faculty and students across the campuses.
- NUIN - Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program
Northwestern also has a graduate program specifically designed to provide training in neuroscience. The NUIN program has faculty and coursework on both the Evanston and the Chicago (Medical School) campuses.
- Northwestern University Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD)
Northwestern University has an NIH-supported Medical Scientist Training program (MSTP) dedicated to the training of physician-scientists. Students in the MSTP program choose IBiS, IGP, NUIN, or other programs to complete the PhD portion of their training. Applicants must apply through the MSTP and the NU Medical School admissions offices.
- Health Sciences Integrated PhD Program
The Health Sciences Integrated Program (HSIP) offers doctoral student training across multiple disciplines within the Health Sciences, including Health and Biomedical Informatics. The PhD program builds upon existing Master's Degree programs in these fields and incorporates new areas of strength in measurement and health behavior. Integration across these programs provides the flexibility for doctoral students to receive rigorous interdisciplinary training in the core content needed for population research in the 21st century.
