Life Experience Essay – describe those life experiences that have contributed to your perspectives on biomedical issues, values and needs, both domestically and internationally, as appropriate. This essay is submitted through the GradCAS application portal.
Statement of Interest (5-page single-space limit) – the application process serves as an entry point into the program. It is important that the applicant has previously thought through which of the general areas and disciplines he/she wishes to embrace. From the point of registration forward, the student begins the process of becoming a scholar in his specific chosen area(s) and will thereby devote the greater time of his professional academic life to the pursuit of stewardship of this discipline(s). Please follow the guidelines below when crafting your statement, which is submitted through the GradCAS application portal.
STATEMENT OF INTEREST GUIDELINES:
- Please provide examples of the research questions you are interested in pursuing. Include sufficient background information to explain why you view such questions as important to pursue. Lastly, you should identify what society will gain in your pursuit of this type of research.
- (e.g. clinical sciences, laboratory sciences, rehabilitation sciences and population sciences )
- You may indicate more than one choice. Please describe any sub-specialization within the areas below:
- clinical including clinical trials
- basic research
- military application
- industrial (pharmaceutical, development of devices or equipment or other)
The Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedicine (PhD) and Master of Science in Biomedicine (MSc) degrees teaches the student to investigate and apply facts and concepts in a unique manner that are taught within individual professional goals and areas of interest. In addition, it is equally important that the student utilize their training and experience to begin to establish a network of colleagues and facilities in their home country that embraces interests similar to their own. The goal of the educational experience is to facilitate continuing further research activities immediately upon graduation.
What is your purpose in earning a Master of Science or a PhD degree? Which of the biomedical disciplines would you apply to the above questions? How would you classify your area of research interest?
It is essential, therefore, in the selection of both students and their mentors, for each applicant to reflect upon and answer the following questions/statements:
Please provide a brief synopsis of your professional experience so far, including any research.
All credentials submitted on behalf of an applicant become a part of that applicant’s file with the University and cannot be returned.
