Steering Committees monitor the academic progress of all students throughout their graduate education. Course grades, qualifying examination results, faculty evaluations, and thesis committee reports are among the criteria considered in reviewing student performance.
The Medical Scientist Training Program Committee monitors M.D./Ph.D. students throughout their training program. In the medical phase, student performance is subject to the policies of the School of Medicine’s Committees on Academic Review and Promotion (see School of Medicine Bulletin). In the Ph.D. portion, student progress is monitored jointly by the MST Program and the Steering Committee of the Division graduate program with which the student is affiliated.
