Students at graduation


The School of Medicine's dynamic growth is reflected in the fact that nearly half of the PhDs awarded since 1950 have been completed in the past 10 years. Graduate students typically take 5.5 years to complete their doctorate. A majority of our graduates go on to postdoctoral training before assuming permanent positions in academia, industry, and the public sector.  

We are always interested in news about our alumni. No matter when you completed your PhD at the School of Medicine please use the update information page to let us know how you are doing and what you are working on these days. You can also email us at or call us at (412) 648-8957.
