Exciting Pharmacology Graduate Programs at University of Cincinnati

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.
