First Year Graduate School Umbrella Program


Welcome to the University of Colorado Denver Biomedical Sciences Program admissions site. As members of our “umbrella” program you will have access to over 140 faculty in thirteen different PhD graduate programs. For more details, please visit our site. When you submit your application, please select programs in order of your preference. These selections will not limit your research choices if you are admitted as a BSP student. Rather your program selections will help us to find out more about your interests and ensure that when you interview, your visit will be as productive as possible.

The Biomedical Sciences Program (BSP) at the University of Colorado Denver is an umbrella admissions process designed to provide incoming students with the greatest amount of flexibility in choosing a course of study. Please go to our About BSP page to see if our Learning Objectives are a match for your graduate training aspirations. During their first year, BSP Fellows enroll in a comprehensive graduate core course, and selected electives in a discipline of their interest. BSP students also conduct three laboratory research rotations concurrent with their enrollment in the graduate Core Course. Students may rotate with any three members of the faculty that participate in the Biomedical Sciences Program.

The Biomedical Sciences Program is committed to diversity and equality in the recruitment and retention of students to the University of Colorado Denver, Anschutz Medical Campus. We actively seek persons from underrepresented populations, which include, but are not limited to, underrepresented ethnic minorities, disabled persons, and those students who are disadvantaged, from rural areas, and/or first-time-in-family college attendees. Resources for these students are available through the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and UCD Disability Resources and Services.
