The mission of the Jefferson Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (JGSBS) is to provide the highest quality graduate and postdoctoral education and research training in the basic biomedical sciences, in order to prepare our students and fellows to make significant contributions to the progress of biomedical science through careers including academia, industry, and government. To achieve this goal, JGSBS and its faculty offer courses and programs across a wide field of basic and translational biomedical sciences leading to the PhD degree, the MS degree, and to graduate certificate programs. In addition, JGSBS offers a Postbaccalaureate Pre-Professional Program for candidates interested in completing their prerequisite course work for Medical and professional schools. The College also coordinates postdoctoral training programs across the campus. Additionally, JGSBS, in conjunction with the Sidney Kimmel Medical College, offers a combined MD/PhD program.
