PIBS landing banner with current students in lab and on campus


As a PIBS student, you are able to explore all of our 14 programs through research rotations during your first year. In order to remain flexible, it is important that you communicate with advisors from all possible programs of interest early and often.

PIBS students have a unique identity. You are members of both the Medical School and Rackham Graduate School. It is important that you familiarize yourself with UMMS here through PIBS, as well as with Rackham, who provides many additional resources for graduate students across campus.

Note: Rackham Graduate School offers a robust site for new and current students, so we won't duplicate all content here. Rather, we'll provide information unique to PIBS students, and reiterate some of the most sought-after information from our community.
