Ph.d. program in clinical/bioanalytical chemistry.

The Ph.D. program in Clinical/Bioanalytical Chemistry is offered jointly by Cleveland State University and the Lerner Research Institute of The Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF). The program is also affiliated with the Rammelkamp Center for Education and Research of the MetroHealth Medical Center of Cleveland.

This unique program attracts students from all over the world. Clinical/Bioanalytical Chemistry applies the knowledge of chemistry and, in particular, chemical analysis to the study of the origins and diagnoses of diseases. Graduates of this Ph.D. program are employed in many clinical- bioanalytical settings. They become directors of clinical laboratories and research scientists in biomedical and biotechnology fields, in invitro diagnostics, in reference and analytical laboratories, in academic institutions, and in many other settings.

Because of the concentration of chemical, medical, and related industries and institutions in the Cleveland area, many graduates of this program have found fulfilling positions locally. Others have selected employment outside of the Cleveland area, including employment outside of the United States.

Chemists with advanced degrees generally have a variety of career opportunities, and Cleveland State graduates are no exception. The program has outstanding faculty with whom students conduct their dissertation research. Students have the opportunity to do research with faculty and research scientists at Cleveland State, The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and other medical centers.

The program has more than fifty faculty members who have a broad range of research interests in disease mechanism and diagnosis, bioanalytical chemistry, biomedicine, and molecular biology. State-of-the-art facilities and advanced bioanalytical technologies are available to students in the program, including (but not limited to) mass spectrometry (including MALDI-TOF and LC-ESI-triple quadruple MS, LC-ESI-ion- trap MS), HPLC, conventional and capillary electrophoresis, immunoassays, ultracentrifugation, NMR, EPR, FTIR, absorption spectroscopy, spectrofluorometry, X-ray crystallography, molecular biology techniques, and computational chemistry and chemical imaging techniques.

Clinical Chemistry Specialization:

The doctoral degree with a Clinical Chemistry Specialization is an internationally recognized program that examines the origins, mechanisms, and diagnosis of disease. Students who complete the program may obtain certification from the American Board of Clinical Chemistry after appropriate work experience and upon successful completion of the certification examination.

The Clinical Chemistry Ph.D. specialization is also an option within the Molecular Medicine Ph.D. specialization for students in both programs. It is the responsibility of the Director of the Clinical Chemistry program to certify that doctoral students in the clinical chemistry specialization have completed the necessary course and research requirements for professional certification.

All recipients of the Ph.D. degree with clinical chemistry specialization are strongly urged to take, following graduation, the examination offered for certification by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry.

Molecular Medicine Ph.D. Program:

Depending on their research interests, applicants to the Ph.D. program may wish to consider participation in the Cellular and Molecular Medicine Specialization, an interdisciplinary initiative linking the resources of the three Cleveland State/ Cleveland Clinic joint Ph.D. programs: Regulatory Biology, Clinical-Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Applied Biomedical Engineering. Together, these units provide unparalleled opportunities for faculty, students, and staff.

The Cellular and Molecular Medicine Specialization is not an independent academic program and does not replace existing doctoral programs. Students must fulfill the requirements for their Ph.D program. The Cellular and Molecular Medicine Specialization forms a logical interface to coordinate collective efforts of existing programs in four ways:

  • by creating a significant presence in the challenging and exciting new area of Cellular and Molecular Medicine;
  • by establishing a critical mass of researchers around a topic of national scientific and applied medical interest;
  • by realizing the commitment of Cleveland State and CCF in their long-standing collaboration to become major contributors in biomedical engineering and biomedical technology; and
  • by expanding the existing doctoral programs beyond their present state of development.

As part of its contribution to these efforts, the Cellular and Molecular Medicine Specialization makes available several graduate assistantships to allow outstanding candidates to concentrate on their research for two years.

Chemistry, PhD

Zanvyl krieger school of arts and sciences.

Johns Hopkins University was the first American institution to emphasize graduate education and to establish a PhD program in chemistry. Founding Chair Ira Remsen initiated a tradition of excellence in research and education that has continued until this day. The Hopkins graduate program is designed for students who desire a PhD in chemistry while advancing scientific knowledge for humankind.

The graduate program provides students with the background and technical expertise required to be leaders in their field and to pursue independent research.

Graduate students’ advancement is marked by entrance exams, coursework, teaching, seminars, oral examinations, and an individual research project that culminates in a thesis dissertation. The thesis research project represents an opportunity for graduate students to make a mark on the world. Working in conjunction with a faculty member or team, individually tailored thesis projects enable students to think independently about cutting-edge research areas that are of critical importance. Thesis research is the most important step toward becoming a PhD scientist, and our program provides an outstanding base with a proven track record of success.

Graduate students make up the heart of the Chemistry Department, and the department strives to support students’ individual needs. Each student is carefully advised and classes are traditionally quite small. Multidisciplinary research and course offerings that increase scientific breadth and innovation are hallmarks of the program.  In addition to academic and technical development, our department also offers several outlets for professional and social development.

Admission Requirements

  • The GRE Chemistry Subject is Test is recommended, but not required.
  • The application fee is $75. However, fee waivers may be requested for applicants that have documentation showing they are a part of SACNAS, MARCC, oSTEM and many other organizations. To access the full list to see if you qualify, go to the  Krieger Graduate Admission and Enrollment  page.

Assistance with the application process is available. Candidates with questions about the application process, or requests for a GRE General Test waiver (or on other matters related to the application) should contact the Admissions Committee’s Academic Affairs Administrator ( [email protected] ).

There are no fixed requirements for admission. Undergraduate majors in chemistry, biology, earth sciences, mathematics, or physics may apply as well as all well-qualified individuals who will have received a BA degree before matriculation. A select number of applicants will be invited to visit campus to tour our facilities and interact with our faculty members and their lab members over a weekend in March.

For further information about graduate study in chemistry visit the Chemistry Department website . 

Program Requirements

Normally, the minimum course requirement for both the M.A. and the Ph.D. degrees is six one-semester graduate courses in chemistry and related sciences. Exceptionally well-prepared students may ask for a reduction of these requirements.

Requirements for the Ph.D. degree include a research dissertation worthy of publication, and a knowledge of chemistry and related material as demonstrated in an oral examination. Each student must teach for at least one year.

PhD Stipend Extensions for Students Impacted by the COVID Pandemic

Boston University believes it is crucial to ensure that current PhD students who have had their progress impeded by the pandemic are able to complete their degrees. While individual PhD programs and the schools/colleges in which they are housed are the primary source of academic and financial support for PhD students, in rare circumstances, programs and schools/colleges may not have adequate resources to support all students whose progress has been hindered by the pandemic. For this reason, the Office of the Provost has established a fund to support PhD stipend extensions necessitated by this circumstance. Learn more about this funding opportunity and how to apply .

Please note that this program will end after the 2023-2024 academic year, concluding in early spring 2024 for logistical and operational purposes.

Thanks to many generous donors, scholarship and fellowship funds were created at the College to offer Pharmacy scholarships for PharmD students.  These funds provide invaluable financial support for professional students every year, and our program is considered among the most generous program of any College of Pharmacy in the nation, thanks to our alumni and friends of the College.  Scholarships are intended to help reduce the cost of education for professional students in our program.

Beginning Fall 2018, the College implemented a new scholarship program for incoming students.  This Pharmacy Scholarship program will complement our shift to reduce the differential between resident and non-resident tuition rates for students, in order to create a structure that allows Michigan to compete for the best students.  Approximately 40% of the incoming class will receive a scholarship to reduce the cost of tuition.  Scholarships are based on academic excellence and strong evidence of community engagement.  Michigan Residents selected for a Pharmacy Scholarship will receive $4,000 per year ($2,000 per term) off tuition.  In the 4th year the scholarship increases to $6,000 to assist with the required three terms of enrollment.  Non-Michigan Residents selected for a Pharmacy Scholarship will receive $8,000 per year ($4,000 per term) off tuition.  In the 4th year the scholarship increases to $12,000 to assist with the required three terms of enrollment.  Students must remain in good academic standing in order to continue to receive their scholarship each year.  There is no application process; all admitted applicants are considered for these scholarships.

In addition, the College offers  Dean's Scholarships  for students who maintain a 3.6 or higher grade point average.  Dean’s Scholarships are awarded to second-, third-, and fourth-year PharmD students at the end of each year.  Details can be found below.  For more information about these and other financial aid programs administered by the College, contact the Student Services Office at the College of Pharmacy.

Master of Prosthetics & Orthotics

The University of Washington Prosthetics & Orthotics Program has been dedicated to the education of prosthetists and orthotists since graduating its first class in 1972. The program has a long history of graduating leaders in the profession. It began as an undergraduate degree and transitioned to the Master of Prosthetics & Orthotics (MPO) in 2011. The MPO program is a full-time, 7 quarters long, on-campus program that prepares students for entry into the profession of prosthetics and orthotics. We are one of 13 accredited prosthetics and orthotics programs in the U.S.

MPO Program Mission

We aim to train students to become prosthetic and orthotic practitioners with solid interdisciplinary communication skills who will enhance participation in life activities for persons with limb absence or disabling neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions.

What is prosthetics and orthotics?

The profession of prosthetics and orthotics is a specialized allied health profession that combines a unique blend of clinical and technical skills. Prosthetist-Orthotists design, fabricate, and fit orthoses (orthopedic braces) and prostheses (artificial limbs) for a broad range of individuals from pediatric to geriatric. Prosthetist-Orthotists interact directly with individuals and their families, advising and supporting the rehabilitation process. They work closely with other members of the rehabilitation team, including orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and nurses. Prosthetist-Orthotists practice in a variety of settings, including hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation centers, outpatient rehabilitation centers, and private practices.

The prosthetic and orthotic profession is supported and represented by professional organizations that promote and advocate on behalf of the profession and the individuals we care for, provide continuing professional education, and ensure standards are maintained in both education and patient care.

  • The National Commission on Prosthetics and Orthotics Education
  • American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists (AAOP)
  • American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABC)
  • American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA)
  • International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO)
  • National Association for the Advancement of Orthotics & Prosthetics (NAAOP)
  • The Association of Children's Prosthetic-Orthotic Clinics (ACPOC)

Why train in the MPO program at the University of Washington?

Program/Course Details

The MPO Program begins in the fall quarter of each academic year and is seven consecutive quarters in length (including a summer quarter between year one and year two). Attendance is full-time during the day, Monday through Friday. Students complete 116 [4] required credits over the course of the program and take from 15 to 18 credits per quarter.

A Curriculum Advisory Committee provides feedback and guidance to the MPO Program faculty regarding the MPO curriculum. 

The MPO program consists of foundational courses and prosthetics and orthotics courses. Each course in the curriculum is offered only once during the academic year, therefore, any departure from completing a course in its planned sequence will result in a one year delay in completing the course, the remaining program requirements, and the year of graduation.

Foundational courses

During the first three quarters of the program, foundational courses (taken with the occupational and physical therapy students) provide the theoretical groundwork for the professional competencies and encourage an interdisciplinary perspective.

Foundational course descriptions

Prosthetics and orthotics courses

Clinical and lab courses instruct students in the principles of designing and fabricating prostheses and orthoses, developing patient evaluation skills and creating individualized treatment plans. Patient volunteers participate throughout the span of the program allowing students to gain practical experience in all aspects of the clinician-patient experience.

Prosthetic and orthotic course descriptions

Evidence-based practice courses related to research methods provide the student with the knowledge and skills to critically evaluate research, to use research evidence to inform clinical practice, and to integrate outcome measures to evaluate clinical practice interventions.

Clinical rotations begin the fourth (summer) quarter of the program. Students attend a clinic in the Seattle area once a week for the full quarter, and then continue to rotate one day a week at a different clinic in the Seattle area each subsequent quarter. Although most rotation sites are located within 35 miles of the University of Washington, students should anticipate the possibility of being placed at sites up to 60 miles away. For a list of currently participating clinical sites in the Seattle area click here.During the break between summer and fall quarters, students complete a concentrated, two-week clinical rotation, at a facility of their choosing anywhere in the US.

While on clinical rotation, students are not covered by the clinical site's Worker's Compensation plan since students are not considered employees. Students are therefore advised to obtain comprehensive health and accident insurance to provide coverage while at the clinical rotation site and for general health needs. Some affiliated clinical sites require a student to carry health insurance. For more information on Medicaid and Healthcare Exchanges, please see this information on insurance options .

For a complete list of courses, please see the  MPO course schedule .

Program completion

Upon successful completion of the program, the University of Washington School of Medicine awards students a Master of Prosthetics and Orthotics (MPO) degree. Following graduation, the student must complete a one-year residency in each discipline, or an 18-month dual residency at a  National Commission on Orthotics and Prosthetics Education (NCOPE) approved site .

The UW MPO Program provides students with guidance and support in their residency search. There is no formal matching program in our profession, yet students do not have a difficult time securing a residency. Positions locally can be scarce and we encourage students to seek residencies nationally.

This residency requirement must be completed for eligibility to apply for the National Certification Boards administered by the  American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABC). The full ABC requirements are here.  

Successful completion of the above steps and additional criteria may be required for an individual to become licensed by an individual state. View an interactive map of state licensing requirements.

Leadership Change in Department of Chronic Disease Epidemiology

New leadership.

Left to right: Dr. Judith Lichtman and Dr. Xiaomei Ma

After nine and a half years as Chair of the Yale School of Public Health’s Department of Chronic Disease Epidemiology, Dr. Judith Lichtman , PhD, MPH, is stepping down effective June 30, 2024, Dean Megan L. Ranney announced Tuesday. Dr. Xiaomei Ma , PhD, will assume department leadership as interim chair for one year, with the possibility of renewal.

Lichtman is a proud Yale alumna who obtained her MPH at Yale in 1988 followed by a PhD in 1996. After a four-year stint as an associate research scientist in neurology, Lichtman joined YSPH as an assistant professor of epidemiology (chronic diseases) in 2001. She became chair of the Department of Chronic Disease Epidemiology in 2015 and was elevated to professor four years later. She was named the Susan Dwight Bliss Professor of Epidemiology (Chronic Diseases) in 2021. Lichtman is nationally recognized for her research into the epidemiology of stroke and heart disease. In addition to her department responsibilities, she also serves as director of the Humanities, Arts, and Public Health Practice at Yale ( HAPPY ) Initiative and co-director of the Center for Neuroepidemiology and Clinical Neurological Research at Yale.

Lichtman’s impactful research has advanced science and provided valuable insights to her field that will improve outcomes and care. Her work with HAPPY has been recognized across Yale and made YSPH a leader in leveraging the rich resources of the humanities and arts to convey important messages in public health. Ranney personally thanked Lichtman for her years of leadership and service to the school in a schoolwide email.

Ranney also thanked Ma for stepping into the role of interim chair. Like Lichtman, Ma has been with the Yale School of Public Health for more than two decades. After obtaining a PhD in epidemiology from the University of California at Berkeley in 2001 and a brief stint as a research scientist there, Ma arrived at YSPH as an assistant professor in 2003. She was promoted to associate professor in 2009 and professor with tenure in 2017. She currently serves as co-leader of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program at the Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center, Yale School of Medicine.

Ma studies the etiology and health outcomes of different types of cancer, with a focus on pediatric cancer and malignancies of the hematopoietic system. With formal training in epidemiology, biostatistics, and medicine, she also investigates the patterns of care and prognosis of patients with different types of cancer, with a specific interest in cancer screening. She co-founded the Yale Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy, and Effectiveness Research (COPPER) Center with Dr. Cary Gross.

“Having spent 20 years at the Department of Chronic Disease Epidemiology, I have a strong sense of belonging and am committed to doing everything I can to help make the department the best it can be, along with all faculty, staff and students,” Ma said of her new role.

Lichtman said: “It has been a tremendous honor to serve as the Chair of Chronic Disease Epidemiology for three terms, spanning almost a decade. During this time, I have had the opportunity to support our amazing faculty, staff, and students as they navigate their exciting and productive careers. There is nothing more rewarding than helping others achieve their personal and professional goals. I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and look forward to continuing to contribute to CDE and YSPH as the Director of the Humanities, Arts, and Public Health Practice at Yale (HAPPY) Initiative.”
