Ph.D. training begins with an immersive 12-week immersive core course, followed by specialized 6-week electives (“BIMS modules”). The electives are selected in consultation with the mentor and PhD program director based on the student’s research interests. All BIMS students are also required to take a Research Ethics course in their first year.
