ASPIRE Modules

The ASPIRE Modules are optional and open to any biomedical sciences PhD student or postdoctoral fellow who wishes to take them to supplement their research training. Class size may be limited, however, and will vary by module.

The ASPIRE Modules are short, non-credit bearing electives that broaden the training experiences of biomedical sciences trainees. These elective modules provide efficient exposure to topics in four theme areas:

  1. Business/Entrepreneurship
  2. Communication
  3. Clinical Research
  4. Teaching

Advance registration will be required.  Trainees who register must commit to attending the full module. Please review the Module FAQs and our Professionalism Policy prior to applying.  If you have any additional questions, please contact
