Biomedical Sciences – Onboarding Procedures
Providing high quality research experiences for undergraduate students is an important part of the Graduate School mission. Such experiences constitute an important recruitment pipeline for our programs, and a critical opportunity for students to determine whether they are suited for a biomedical research career. These opportunities are critical to the larger University mission of education, diversity, mentoring and training. In addition, new BS/MS programs may involve significant research activity that must be undertaken at the graduate level across campuses in order for students to earn necessary credits and to make progress on their MS thesis.
The Graduate School provides opportunities for advanced study in a number of focus areas. These opportunities are accessed by undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and physicians.
The Graduate School Office on the Bowman Gray campus now provides on-boarding policy for undergraduate students in good standing for research experiences or enrollment in graduate level courses as “unclassified” students. This practice is consistent with those applied to students at other levels of training, such as postdoctoral fellows, who may enroll in graduate courses as unclassified graduate students.
For those interested in participating in research experiences or enroll in graduate level courses please visit our website at http://graduate.wfu.edu/admissions/onboarding.html for onboarding procedures and applications.
