The Program in Biomedical Sciences (PIBS) is an interdisciplinary gateway program that coordinates admissions and first-year studies for 14 Ph.D. programs, including Pharmacology.

You will apply to PIBS through the Rackham Graduate School application, and indicate your primary and secondary preference for programs. If you're interested in any of the other 13 programs besides Pharmacology, you should talk to both programs early and often to remain flexible through the interview process and first year research rotations.
