Graduate-studies policies and forms

Students in the Master's and PhD program should have successfully taken a university-level course in general physiology, anatomy or cell biology. If they have not taken such a course, they will have to do so in the first year of their graduate program; since the course will be at the undergraduate level, it will not count toward the course requirements of their graduate program.
