IBS Curriculum Overview
Each course in the IBS curriculum -- Biomolecules and Metabolism, Biomolecules and Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Cell Signaling and Experimental Genetics -- presents concepts central to understanding key advances in the biomedical sciences. The final course, Integrated Biomedical Sciences, builds upon cellular and molecular biology to develop, at an organismal level, a truly integrative appreciation of biologic systems.
In addition to the six didactic courses, students in IBS complete four laboratory rotations chosen among faculty in any of the participating basic science departments. Students also participate in the research seminars and journal clubs of the department in which they rotate.
The IBS curriculum includes 10 credit hours in fall semester and 11 credit hours in spring semester.
