Open House event coming in Fall 2020


Each year several Training Programs hosts an Open House for prospective graduate students interested in pursuing biomedical research. Over the years, the Open House has increased the visibility of graduate programs at Vanderbilt among prospective students, many of whom are from smaller institutions with limited exposure to biomedical research.
