Basic Sciences Training and Research

International medical graduates, medical students and doctoral graduates all may take advantage of research training programs available from Tufts' Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences.

The Sackler School is globally recognized for its commitment to collaborative and interdisciplinary research in solving important real-world biomedical problems – from the most basic to bench-to-bedside research and beyond.

Sackler offers the following research opportunities:

Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science: A one-year program leading to a Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science, the program provides training for physicians and health professionals who seek additional clinical research training but are not ready to pursue a degree in this discipline.

Non-Degree Course Work: Individuals who have not been admitted to a Sackler School degree program may take courses as special students. 

Please note that only the programs listed above, not all those described on the Sackler site, are open to international candidates. Those interested may contact the TUSM Office of International Affairs (OIA) for assistance in completing their applications for these programs.
