Hello, I’d like to tell you about the Biomedical Sciences Programs at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS).  We offer a Ph.D. Program, a 2-year Research Master’s Program and a new 16-month Biotechnology Master’s Program.  Our students get rigorous scientific training in both the classroom and in unique hands-on laboratory courses.  They get lots of personal attention from faculty mentors in their research labs.  Our students learn to evaluate and understand the research literature, present their work orally at regional and national scientific meetings, and are trained in scientific writing, including practice in writing grant proposals.

The Ph.D. program offers a competitive stipend ($26,500/year), 100% tuition and fee waiver, and free health insurance.  Many of our Ph.D. graduates enter postdoctoral positions at large research institutions like Duke, University of Pennsylvania and the National Institutes of Health.  Some of our Ph.D. graduates are teaching at colleges and universities, while others work in industry.  The average time to graduation is 5.75 years.  The application deadline for the Ph.D. program is January 13, 2017.  By that date, we must receive all materials.

We also have a terrific 2-year Research Master’s program, which is very similar to our Ph.D. program.  All of its graduates have found good jobs in biotech companies and universities, or have gone on to further education.  Our Biotechnology Master’s Program is a unique 16-month curriculum focused on hands-on technical training in cutting-edge technology to prepare graduates for employment.  It includes 6 months of internship training at a biotechnology industry partner and/or at EVMS. All the graduates in the program’s first class are employed, some in companies where they interned.  More information on the Master’s programs can be found on the EVMS website (links below).  The early application deadlines are March 1 and April 1.  The final deadlines are May 15 and June 1.

Details of our admission requirements and application procedures for all programs are found on our web pages (below).
