Training Tomorrow's Researchers Today

The Biomedical Research Training Program (BRTP) is a common entry program for Ph.D. study in the College of Medicine’s five Basic Science Departments and the Cancer Graduate Research Program. The purpose of this program is:

  • to provide students with greater flexibility and wider opportunities for choosing a laboratory in which to pursue Ph.D. research,
  • to provide students with a solid, broad-based training in multidisciplinary biomedical research. Biomedical Ph.D. training at UNMC prepares students for a variety of job opportunities in academia (teaching and/or research), industry (research and/or management), and other related fields.

The BRTP has a directive to recruit students that are eligible for NIH supported training programs. Thus, unfortunately, we are not currently accepting applications from non-citizens or non-permanent-residents.  Please see our Admissions page for admission requirements.
