Teaching Requirement

CMB students must serve as teaching assistants (GSIs) for one term. There is a great variety of teaching opportunities throughout the University at all levels of education, and students have chosen to teach courses as diverse as Cancer Biology (graduate), Introductory Biology (undergraduate) and Histology (medical). The CMB Teaching Coordinator and/or the CMB Program Administrator act as liaisons with the contributing departments and assist students in securing teaching positions. CMB students have been motivated and successful teachers, and have received recognitions such as the prestigious University-wide Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award and Medical School Awards for Excellence in Teaching.

For available undergraduate-level courses, contact the CMB program at cmbgrad@umich.edu.
