Students may apply to this program through WPI or through UMMS. Students with biomedical or clinical backgrounds should apply through UMMS, while those with engineering and/or computational backgrounds should apply through WPI. The same committee reviews all applications, and students will have the same PhD awarded. Applicants should have background in two of the three core competencies listed under Curriculum.
If applicants are not accepted for the Joint Program, they will still be considered for the WPI or UMMS graduate program to which they apply. Students may apply to both programs.
