Each student's curriculum is tailored to match one's background and interests while at the same time providing essential Track-specific training. Most Tracks have recommended or required courses, but students can choose electives that are outside of these recommendations. It is quite normal to find students from many different Tracks sitting side-by-side in the same classes. BBS provides an extensive menu of graduate courses covering the full spectrum of research disciplines, and descriptions of our most recent course offerings are available here. Beginning in the spring of 2017 the BBS Program and MD/PhD program, in concert with personnel from local biotech and pharma companies, began teaching a course entitled Skill Development for Diverse Scientific Careers.
