Academic Requirements

Applicants to the Einstein Graduate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences must:

  • be in the final year of an undergraduate curriculum, or already hold a Bachelor's degree or Master's degree from a college or university of recognized standing, or present evidence of an equivalent education (evaluation of equivalency of an undergraduate degree, including qualifications of international students, will be determined by the Assistant Director of Admissions and the Graduate Admissions Committee)
  • have successfully completed undergraduate courses in biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, mathematics (including calculus), and physics, with advanced electives in biology, chemistry, and/or physics (a course in biochemistry is strongly recommended); or have successfully completed your college's major in biology, chemistry, physics or similar science; or have successfully completed an undergraduate engineering curriculum
  • have had a sustained research experience

Supporting Materials

After submitting the on-line application, all Ph.D. applicants must submit the following supporting materials:

  • GRE Scores: All applicants must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) within three years of expected matriculation date. A subject test is not required. GRE results should be sent directly to the Graduate Office. The school code is 2997; a departmental code is not necessary.
  • Letters of Recommendation: Three letters of recommendation are required. They may be submitted online as part of the online application.
  • TOEFL Scores: Applicants from countries where English is not the primary language must take the TOEFL examination. International applicants who have completed an undergraduate degree either in the United States or in an English-speaking country do not need to take the TOEFL exam. Inquiries about these examinations should be addressed directly to the Educational Testing Service. The school code is 2997; a departmental code is not necessary.
  • Transcripts: A transcript or academic record is required from each college or university attended and listed in the Education Section of your application. You should upload a scanned copy of your transcript or academic record to your application for each institution listed in the Education Section of your application prior to submitting it (please check that uploaded transcripts are legible). Unofficial copies of your transcript or academic record are acceptable.

You do not need to mail in a copy of a transcript or academic record which you have already uploaded to your on-line application. 

Applicants who have attended international institutions, whose transcripts are in a language other than English, should upload the original transcript and the certified English translation to your on-line application.

We require that only matriculating students need to provide an Official Transcript (sent to us directly from the institution). We will accept official transcripts by postal mail or electronically sent directly from the institution.
