The Immunology Program at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth is an interdepartmental program that trains both postdoctoral fellows and predoctoral students in cellular and molecular immunology. Most graduate students pursuing the PhD degree in immunology train in labs in the umbrella Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) and receive their degree from the Microbiology and Immunology Department. Other immunology students matriculate through the Dartmouth’s Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (QBS) program. Individuals interested in applying for admission to the Program in Immunology may choose to direct their application through the MCB or QBS program. Qualified students are notified of acceptance through the admission committees from the respective graduate PhD programs. Course requirements and curriculum for students vary somewhat depending on the graduate program into which they are enrolled. During the first year, students enrolled in the Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology take an intensive three-term core course in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology genetics, immunology, and molecular pathogenesis. Students also need to complete three additional advanced-level elective courses. After three rotations in student-chosen laboratories, a thesis laboratory is determined. The MCB graduate programs utilize laboratory rotations in the first year as a means to introduce students to different investigators and their model systems. By the end of the second year, it is generally expected that a student has taken the required advanced-level courses, completed their teaching experience, and passed the qualifying exam.
