With the help of a recently awarded sub-grant from the National Institutes of Health Nevada INBRE program, Great Basin College has created a pipeline for GBC graduates to jump-start their pathway to graduate programs in research or professional schools including medical, dental, and pharmacy school.
The goal at GBC will be to guide students into biomedical careers while ensuring the quality of its science programs and aligning its course offerings with the requirements of professional schools such as those at UNR and UNLV.
The pipeline will leverage the newly added Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences degree program at GBC, transitioning graduates to biomedicine careers, graduate program research, and professional schools.
As a first step, interested students should consider participating in the summer workshop during the first week of August. *See application link below.
The free, one-week summer workshop will: inform students about how to succeed in science and math courses at GBC, center on pathways to careers in biomedical sciences, and establish connections with their student peers and GBC faculty.
Students will also travel to visit one or more of the professional schools at UNR where they will meet with advisors, visit research labs, and tour the campus.
This opportunity is available to any student over the age of 18 and enrolled at GBC for the Fall 2016 Semester, and who is interested in the Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences degree program.
For details about the workshop and to sign-up, click the link below or email Margo Teague at Margo.Teague@gbcnv.edu.
