Apply to the Clinical and Population Health Research program at the University of Massachussetts!

At UMass, students receive stipends of at least $34,000 (amount set in April), health insurance, tuition, fees, and I funds to defray costs of starting a PhD program (e.g., moving).  Average time to degree completion – 4 years. For those considered under-represented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences (NIH criteria), there are 8 Chancellor’s awards offering an additional $7000 per year in scholarships for 3 years and $2000 a year for 3 years for professional development.

Curriculum: tailored to student’s research interests, grant writing (high success rates for student NIH awards), strong sense of community, full immersion in research from program onset

Outcomes: students get into highly competitive post-docs (Harvard, UNC, etc.) or launch careers in industry or the government.
