The General Biomedical Sciences Track (GBST) is available to students who have not yet decided on a particular discipline in biomedical science. Using this mechanism, students are accepted into an undifferentiated Ph.D. or M.S. track for the first year of study at Drexel Med.
During this year students complete the core curriculum and two laboratory rotations, and attend a journal club in both fall and spring semester. Additional elective courses are recommended in order to facilitate the student’s decision to enter a specific program by July 1, the beginning of the second year of training.
In lieu of a specific program director, the vice dean for biomedical graduate and postgraduate studies, Barry Waterhouse, Ph.D., will chair an advising committee to oversee the activities of GBST students during the first year of study and to provide guidance as they transition from an undifferentiated track to a specific program.
