Attending graduate school is an exciting and challenging event in a scientist's life. Graduate students see their knowledge, skills, and professionalism expanded in directions that they would never imagine. Here at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, we take pride in our students and the preparation they receive for careers.

Our school awarded its first master of science degree in 1975, and its first doctoral degree in 1978. Today we offer programs leading to M.S., Ph.D., and M.D./Ph.D. Each year, we welcome students from around the world. In the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, we are educating the next generation of scientists and health-related professionals in a dynamic, diverse, and productive research environment that fosters creativity and discovery.

The students and faculty in the Graduate School are a small, close-knit community. But there is nothing small about the questions we are asking and the advancements we are making in biomedical science. I hope that you have an opportunity to visit our campus and talk with our faculty about your area of interest and career options.

Brandt Schneider, P.h.D.
Dean, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
