Graduate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences

7th Annual Declaration Celebration

Wednesday, September 27, 2017
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Lubin Dining Hall

Please join us as we celebrate with the mentors and PhD & MD/PhD students who have recently declared their labs and started their thesis research.

Open to all Einstein students, staff, and faculty

Dress Code: Business Casual 

A Cause for Celebration

First year graduate students at Einstein are responsible for beginning their coursework as well as completing three laboratory rotations. These laboratory rotations allow students to explore their particular research interests while taking advantage of the breath of science available to them.

At the end of the first year, each student is asked to declare the laboratory of his or her choice. The laboratory they choose is where they will do their thesis research, culminating in their PhD.
