The Center for Reproductive Science at Northwestern University is proud to announce a new Master of Science in Reproductive Science and Medicine program offered under the direction of Dr. Teresa Woodruff and management of Drs. Francesca Duncan and Elizabeth Sefton! This is an exciting opportunity for individuals looking to advance their studies in reproductive science and medicine. In addition to training with some of the most renowned experts in the field, upon completion of the program, graduates will be prepared for research and technical positions with academic, clinical, and pharmaceutical laboratories. Students will also have a strong foundation for further training to PhD and medical degree programs. See below for more information about the program.
The Master of Science in Reproductive Science and Medicine (MS-RSM) is an 18-month, full-time, terminal Master’s of Science degree focusing on mammalian reproductive biology and medicine. The mission of MS-RSM is to provide fundamental reproductive science training with a focus on applications to human health.
Program curricula consists of structured reproductive science coursework, hands-on laboratory instruction, and thesis research. Course topics cover human reproductive development, reproductive endocrinology, fertility management, and human reproductive health and disease. Electives complement core courses and allow students to create areas of specialization and achieve academic breadth. A majority of program courses and activities are located on the Chicago campus. However, the program is cross-campus and some core courses, electives, and thesis research opportunities are located on the Evanston and Children’s Memorial Research Center campuses.
Applications are open and the deadline is May 31, 2016. Applicants should prepare GRE/MCAT scores, 3 letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and a CV. Classes begin September 2016. Use the online application to apply: http://www.tgs.northwestern.edu/admission/.
