Neurosciences Graduate Program

The neuroscience Ph.D. program incorporates the neuroscience faculty at the Medical Center and the main campus in Lawrence. Students earn a Ph.D. in Neuroscience. The Ph.D. program has different tracks based on the student’s research interest and the location of the faculty mentor. Neuroscience graduate students at KU Medical Center take a majority of their courses at KUMC and have the option of taking selected courses on the main campus. The reverse is true of students in Lawrence. Students and faculty from both campuses come together during the Neuroscience Seminar series, which is conducted by video conference.
