Course Requirements

For Ph.D. programs within the I.U. School of Medicine, a life sciences minor may be selected by a student with the consent of the student’s advisory committee.  This minor requires a minimum of 12 credit hours of advanced graduate level courses taken outside of the student’s major department. The credits must be distributed among three other departments/programs chosen from the biological sciences, or from anatomy, biochemistry, biophysics, dental sciences, medical genetics, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, or toxicology. At least 6 credit hours must be in a single department/program. The minor representative on the advisory committee must be selected from one of the departments in which courses for the minor are taken and will ordinarily be from the department contributing two courses to the minor.
