The Department of Pharmacology and Systems Physiology at the University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine currently offers a unique hands-on MS experience (thesis or non-thesis tracks) emphasizing drug discovery and preclinical pharmacology.
Sometimes undergraduate students are unsure how to pursue their scientific career goals. UC’s 1-year MS non-thesis and 2-year MS thesis track options offer many exciting opportunities for students to explore their scientific interests while discovering new career paths. As an interdisciplinary field, students study several aspects of preclinical drug discovery, safety, and development and are scientifically well-rounded, which creates numerous opportunities for UC’s Pharmacology graduates. One unique aspect of this program is the opportunity to interact with several invited speakers from UC’s drug industry partners (Johnson & Johnson, Covance, Eli Lilly, Battelle, Charles River) plus students gain hands-on research experience while working with expert UC and Cincinnati Children’s faculty. About half of these students use the program as a gap year experience, preparing for advanced academic training in the life sciences (MD, PhD, DMD, PharmD, DVM), with the remaining graduates employed in academia (teaching/research) or private sector enterprises (www.med.uc.edu/ms-in-pharmacology/alumni).
Applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will be accepted until June 1, 2018 or until the class is full.
Early applications are encouraged, and foreign applicants should apply before March 1, 2018.

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.
