*Required

The IPM curriculum is designed to allow flexibility for individual students. A program of study that is tailored to the student’s research goals will be developed by the student’s advisor working with the Program Director. Enrolled students can also take graduate courses offered by Kent State University, the University of Akron, Cleveland State University, and Youngstown State University.

M.D./PH.D. & PHARM.D./PH.D. Dual Degree Programs

Students wanting to pursue a dual degree take the Transitions to Pharmaceutical Medicine course in lieu of the curriculum required for direct entry. The Transitions to Pharmaceutical Medicine course transitions the professional student from a primarily didactic learning environment to one that is problem solving with instruction by members of the graduate faculty. There are two, two-hour sessions per week for the 16 week semester. The course emphasizes topics such as drug discovery and development, and drug delivery and drug effi cacy, followed by two weeks of integration and assessment.
