What we look for in prospective students


We love students that are passionate about science! We look for academically strong students who have at least one major research experience.
Students with a traditional biomedical background would fit in well with the IGP program. Students with a background in chemistry, physics, math, or computer science but would like to explore a biomedical graduate program should explore the QCB program (https://medschool.vanderbilt.edu/qcb).
