The Department of Pharmacology and Cell Biophysics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine currently offers a one-year, on-site, non-thesis MS degree program in Pharmacology focused on Basic Pharmacology, Drug Discovery, and Safety Pharmacology. The program is designed to prepare students for advanced academic training in the life sciences (MD, PhD, DDS, DVM) or employment in the pharmaceutical industry, contract research organizations, or regulatory agencies (FDA, CDC).
The University of Cincinnati’s MS program is now in its fifth year of operation. All students in the first four classes successfully completed their degrees. About half of graduates have gone on to PhD or MD programs, and 100% of our graduates who applied to medical school have been admitted. About half of graduates are employed in the academic research or private sector enterprises.
For their next class (starting in August 2017), they plan to enroll 15 students. Applications from domestic applicants will be accepted until 30 June 2017 or until the class is full. Early applications are encouraged, and foreign applicants should apply before 1 March 2017.
