Looking for some extra resume padding or laboratory experience before diving into a competitive graduate program? The Ohio State University offers a Post-baccalaureate Research Program called Discovery Prep, perfect for students looking to earn a PhD in biomedical science but need an extra step before applying to graduate programs. Accepted applicants are provided with one year of paid research experience in a laboratory with a nationally recognized research mentor in a biomedical science discipline; Graduate Record Exam (GRE) preparation assistance; individual mentoring; assistance with application preparation for PhD graduate programs; career development workshops; and opportunities to travel and network with other scientists throughout the nation.
If you are graduating soon and feel that this program could benefit you, applications will open in December 2018. Further information can be found on Discovery PREP’s website, by contacting Discovery.PREP@osumc.edu, or calling (614)-658-9140.
