The Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology hosts the Integrative Physiology & Molecular Medicine (IPMM) Doctoral Program, one of six programs that comprise the University of Nebraska Medical Center's (UNMC) Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences (IGPBS). The IPMM doctoral program consists of more than 50 faculty from 28 different colleges and departments across UNMC. Complementary research interests and successful collaborations among IPMM faculty provide graduate students with diverse research and learning experiences that emphasize the cellular and molecular processes underscoring coordinated integration of organ systems within the body.
- All new Ph.D. students must enroll in the IGPBS and can enter IPMM directly as a "committed" IPMM student or after completing the fall semester as a "non-committed" IGPBS student (please see IGPBS Admissions for more information on committed versus non-committed students).
- Students who enrolled prior to 2016 are pursuing the Ph.D. degree in Cellular & Integrative Physiology (CIP). Current CIP students can access detailed program information in the CIP Student Handbook, in pdf format. (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it.)
- M.S. degree in IPMM or CIP is available only as an option for enrolled Ph.D. students who change their educational objective prior to earning the doctoral degree. Direct admission to the M.S. Program is not currently available.
