The Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology is administered by the Microbiology and Immunology Department of Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.

To qualify for award of the Ph.D. degree, a student must fulfill the following requirements:

1.  Satisfactory completion of a year-long graduate-level sequence in biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology; a one-term teaching assignment; and a three-term course in laboratory biochemistry. The last will consist of three small research projects, conducted in rotation with different faculty members for periods of about three months each.
2.  Satisfactory completion of three other graduate-level courses in microbiology and immunology or related disciplines.
3.  Satisfactory completion of an approved ethics course.
4.  Attendance at the weekly seminar series of the Program.
5.  Participation in a journal club during fall, winter and spring terms every year and in the weekly Research in Progress series.
6.  Satisfactory completion of a written and oral qualifying examination.
7.  Satisfactory completion of a significant research project and preparation of a thesis acceptable to the thesis advisory committee.
8.  Successful defense of the thesis in an oral examination and presentation of the work in a lecture.

The courses listed below are primarily designed for graduate students. The student should decide, in consultation with his/her committee and course instructors, whether his/her background is appropriate for the content of the course.
