*New program for outstanding students*

The purpose of the program is to train motivated students with outstanding abilities for research, to advance groundbreaking biomedical research.

 

Admission to the program will be based on student qualifications and an admissions interview.  During the interview applicants will be required to present their final / master’s project or other relevant scientific project they choose, and to demonstrate knowledge and intellectual ability in the sphere of the project they present.

 

 

Advisor

Applicants can be accepted to the outstanding students track without having an advisor at the time of the interview.  The student must indicate in his Research Statement potential laboratories for research in the Faculty of Medicine.  The student must also find an advisor by the time he/she begins his/her studies.

 

 

Scholarships

Students in the Outstanding Students program will receive an increased stipend for the entire period of their studies (contingent on the advisor’s participation).  Continuation of the stipend from one year to the next will depend on the student’s progress report and advancement through the doctoral stages, as is standard practice.  The Scholarships Committee of the School for Graduate Studies will be in charge of dispensing stipends.

 

Criteria for acceptance into the Outstanding Students Program in the regular doctoral track for students with a master’s degree.

 

Candidates may apply for the program if they are outstanding students who received a weighted grade of at least 90 for their bachelor’s degree; and a weighted grade of at least 90 for their master’s degree and a grade of at least 93 on their final project.  The admissions committee may consider applicants with grades lower than 90 (but higher than 87) for bachelor’s degree courses according to the student’s special accomplishments: published article, presentation of groundbreaking research, creative and interdisciplinary thinking, proven special abilities, knowledge or planning for the doctorate (based on the interview and/or recommendations).
