PhD Program

Einstein’s extraordinary graduate experience produces independent biomedical scientists capable of carrying out significant, award-winning scientific work to improve the health and well- being of humankind.

Our Ph.D. program now boasts over 1,400 graduates employed in a wide range of academic scientific careers, as well as in non-academic settings worldwide.


First Explore, Then Decide

You apply directly to our PhD program, not to a specific department. This allows you to gain exposure many areas of research before making an informed decision about your thesis work.
