If your application is accepted and you are invited for an interview, the Biomedical Science Program Administrator will contact you about your travel and help make arrangements convenient for you. The Biomedical Science Program covers expenses for transportation, lodging, and meal expenses during your travel and visit.
The events of your interview weekend typically include an informal welcome with several current students on Thursday evening, Friday interviews, and informal Friday and Saturday activities. Friday begins with a continental breakfast with current students and the program directors. After an overview of the program, 5-8 interviews are scheduled, along with a lunch with current students, and a tour of campus and scientific facilities. Friday evening, several current and previous Biomedical Science Program students host you at dinner at a local downtown restaurant. On Saturday, current and previous program students coordinate interesting activities in and around Denver. Saturday evening, there is a poster session of current students' research followed by a buffet dinner with all visiting prospective students, faculty and current students from each of the programs.
The interviews are one-on-one talks with the professors, Admissions Committee faculty, and student Admissions representatives within the Biomedical Science Program. They last up to 30 minutes. You may bring any additional information you would like to share. Current students will escort you to and from your interviews. Most candidates wear nice slacks or pants paired with a nice shirt or sweater. You may wear a suit, but it isn't customary. Keep in mind comfort and fluctuating temperatures and weather.
Our current and previous program students play an important and integral part in coordinating your interview weekend. On Friday, the student who will take you to and from your interviews can answer your questions about the program and give you the "inside scoop" about their experience here. Candidates will have the opportunity to attend dinners, social events, and see highlights of Denver, all arranged by our current students.
