The Integrated Physiology Program seeks highly motivated students with the strong backgrounds in quantitative sciences and a passion for biomedical research.
The average undergraduate GPA of accepted students is 3.40. Students seeking admission should have taken Organic Chemistry, Biology, General Physics, and college level mathematics through Calculus. Courses in Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, Genetics and Physiology are recommended. Research experience is strongly recommended. Students with excellent records and research experience who lack specific courses are encouraged to apply. Where additional course-work is necessary to provide background of sufficient depth for our rigorous curriculum, supplemental courses or reading programs can be designed. Students applying for the Fall term should take the GRE no later than October so that their scores will be available to the Program.
The application deadline is December 1st. A completed application consists of:
- Part I and Part II of the Graduate School application (combined in the on-line application)
- One official transcript of all academic work completed to date. To be consider "official", the transcripts must come from the issuing institution directly to the CU graduate school.
