Average Number of Years to Complete the Program: 5-6 Program Description: The Chicago Medical School offers a program leading to the PhD and MD/PhD degrees in Neuroscience.  The program is interdepartmental, incorporating faculty from the Departments of Neuroscience, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Cell Biology & Anatomy, Cellular & Molecular Pharmacology, and Physiology & Biophysics.  The objective of the program is to prepare candidates for careers in research and teaching by providing a modern, multidisciplinary foundation in molecular, cellular, systems, and clinical neuroscience. The firsttwo years of graduate study are occupied by course work and rotations through several research laboratories. In subsequent years, students are involved primarily in dissertation research. Although full tuition and stipend support is provided, our students have been extremely successful at generating their own NIH funding.  Approximately 50% of our students have been supported by individual National Research Service Awards from NIDA or NIMH at any given time for each of the past four years. Areas of research strength include drug abuse and drug-induced neuroplasticity; growth factors and their receptors………. Admission Requirements: (minimum requirements for the Graduate School): 3.0 GPA in science or psychology courses 2.8 overall GPA GRE 500 (verbal) 550 (quant) 550 (analytical)… Slide26:  FEES FOR MEMBERSHIP Graduate  $265 Postdoctoral  $265 Undergraduate   $100 International Affiliate  $50 Slide27:  SFN Chapters Graduate Student Travel Awards Postdoctoral Travel Awards Travel Awards to FENS Forum Grass Traveling Scientist Lectures Chapter Web Sites Addresses Guidelines Chapter Representative Registration Form ANDP-SFN Interactions Slide28:  Summary Organization of department chairs and program directors More than 250 academic institutions in North America Meetings and reports on training policy matters Discussion forum for trainees at SFN Education Award in Neuroscience National Survey of Neuroscience Programs Online Resources Directory of Neuroscience Training Programs SFN interactions
