PIBS Preview

Are you interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in the biomedical sciences? Would you like to preview graduate training at the University of Michigan, one of the largest and most vibrant research communities in the country?

PIBS Preview will take place on October 28-30, 2020

Although we’d love to host the event in Ann Arbor, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has created a complex set of challenges and public health concerns that make an in-person event unlikely. Those same challenges and concerns may still exist this winter, meaning many graduate programs won’t be able to host students on their campuses for admission interviews.

To that end, we have reimagined PIBS Preview as a fully online and interactive experience where attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn more about applying to graduate school, the interview process, and life as a grad student
  • Meet with faculty, current students, and more
  • Practice exploring graduate programs and interviewing with faculty in a digital landscape

Open an online application and submit the following materials by July 31:

  • Application Form
  • Research Statement
  • Personal Statement
  • Most recent copy of transcripts (can be unofficial)
  • CV/Resume
  • Letter(s) of recommendation (1 required to submit your application, can request up to 2)

To be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and plan on starting graduate school in Fall 2021 or Fall 2022.

Feel free to contact us at pibs@umich.edu if you have any questions.
