Pharmacology PhD Program

Graduate Training and External Advisory Committees



The administration of the program is managed by the Graduate Training Committee (GTC). The GTC is one of the most active committees in the department. The Committee administers all aspects of a student’s training, including student recruiters, individual program design, review and approval of laboratory rotation proposals, scheduling of the preliminary and comprehensive examinations, and selection of a thesis advisory committee. The Committee maintains an active role in overseeing the training in its entirety, making sure that curriculum, research experiences, and seminars provide an integrated and complete training experience. Entering students choose an advisor from the GTC to help guide them through their first year of training.
