MS Program

Dear Dr. Barkley,

I am writing to ask for your help in identifying undergraduate students in life sciences or pre-medical programs who may be interested in postgraduate training in Pharmacology. In the Department of Pharmacology and Cell Biophysics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, we now offer a one-year, on-site, non-thesis MS degree program in Pharmacology that focuses on basic pharmacology, drug discovery, and safety pharmacology. The program is designed to prepare students for advanced academic training in the life sciences (MD, PhD, DDS, PharmD, DVM, etc.) or employment in the pharmaceutical industry, contract research organizations, or regulatory agencies (FDA, CDC).

Our MS program is now in its fourth year of operation. All students in the first three classes successfully completed their degrees. About half of our graduates have gone on to PhD or MD programs, and 100% of our graduates who applied to medical school have been admitted. About half are employed in the academic or private sector. None of our past (~30) graduates is unemployed or not engaged in pursuit of higher education in professional careers.

For our next class (starting in August 2016), we plan to enroll about 15 students. Applications from domestic applicants will be accepted until 30 June 2016 or until the class is full. Early applications are encouraged, and foreign applicants should apply before 1 March 2016.

For further information about the program and a link to the online application, please check: Interested students or faculty may also contact us directly.

I would be grateful if you or one of your staff could bring this potential career path to the attention of junior or senior undergraduates at your institution, and post the attached brochure on an appropriate bulletin board. Please forward this email to interested students or colleagues.

Thanks and best regards,
