 Matriculation into the doctoral program is based upon prior demonstration of a high level of academic achievement in graduate and/or undergraduate work. Advanced study and research are conducted under the guidance of a faculty member in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and an interdisciplinary dissertation committee. A total of 72 credits (30 course work credits and 42 credits of research) are required to meet the Department’s and the Institute’s residency and thesis requirements. A maximum of eight credits at the 4000 level (a maximum of two courses) may be applied to the 30 coursework requirement, with the remainder of the courses at the 6000 level. Students must have a 3.5 for Advancement to the Doctoral Status and maintain a 3.0 GPA or better to meet the Institute’s requirements. These requirements are formalized in a Plan of Study that is prepared in consultation with the student’s research adviser.

Please note that students have no more than seven years to complete their Ph.D. Students who entered the program with a Master’s have no more than five years to complete their Ph.D.
