Biomedical Science Graduate Program

The Biomedical Science Graduate Program at The University of Toledo prepares students for an independent career in research through advanced course complemented by active participation in faculty-mentored laboratory research in one of our five BMS Research Tracks. 

Tracks are organized around research themes that relate to human disease processes. They are affiliated with basic science departments but are interdisciplinary and draw faculty members with common research interests from a variety of basic science and clinical departments.


Concentration / Tracks:

The University of Toledo offers research-intensive Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Master of Science (M.S.) degrees in Biomedical Science in five concentrations or tracks:


Dual Degrees

The four tracks also offer Ph.D. and M.S. in Biomedical Science degrees in combination with the Doctor of Medicine degree (M.D.) through the College of Medicine. Typically, the M.D./M.S. and M.D./Ph.D. dual degree students complete the first two years of medical school, then complete the graduate degree, and follow that with their last two years of medical school.  The same financial aid described above for graduate students is available to dual degree candidates during their graduate school training. Medical school tuition scholarships also are available on a competitive basis.

The University of Toledo's food pantries were recently featured in an article for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) website. 

Titled "Feeding future doctors," the article looked at addressing food insecurities among medical students.

Graduate student Hunter Eby was featured in the article. 

“You’re really taking away a lot of stressors … a lot of things that are holding [students] back," he said of having the food pantry available to students. "It allows them to put their best foot forward in class or in the lab.”

UToledo opened its on-campus food pantry more than a decade ago and opened a location on the Health Science Campus in November 2019.
