Academics

Sackler Class

The Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences provides an array of training opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.  Additional programs focus on summer research training  for undergraduates and medical students and on research internships for post-baccalaureates.  All of these programs are strongly grounded in the collegial and collaborative atmosphere that permeates our school and the Tufts University Health Science campus that is our home. Although Sackler School faculty are drawn primarily from the faculty of Tufts University School of Medicine, biomedical researchers from other schools of Tufts University contribute to Sackler Programs.  Members of the Sackler faculty from the College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, the School of Dental Medicine, and the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition bring unique perspectives and opportunities to our trainees.

The Basic Science Division of the Sackler School offers PhD training in eight different disciplines and is also home to a federally funded MD/PhD program.  The school also partners with Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine to offer a DVM/PhD degree.  The Clinical Research Division of the Sackler School offers MS and PhD training and a certificate program in Clinical & Translational Science to physicians and others holding advanced health science degrees.  Students who are not enrolled in Sackler graduate programs may take courses as Non-matriculated or Special Students in either division of the School.

The Sackler School is also home to a summer research program for undergraduates and to a post-baccalaureate internship program.   Many of our faculty provide research experiences for medical students studying at Tufts University School of Medicine.  Visiting students can also be hosted by labs in the Sackler School and our laboratories provide training to Tufts undergraduates who are focusing on a career in science.
