Students must be enrolled in the TBS Ph.D. program.
This program permits full-time enrollment in residence at Ohio University, and an I-20 may be issued based on admission to this program.
The TBS master’s degree requires a minimum of 30 credits in graduate work beyond the bachelor’s degree and the completion of an approved Individual Development Plan (IDP), which will minimally include the following requirements:
TBS Coursework Requirements
Students must complete a minimum of 18 hours of courses, including each of the following categories.
Biostatistics and Epidemiology
Complete at least one course (min. 3 hours) of biostatistics or epidemiology coursework, normally from the following options:
Complete the following course:
Responsible Conduct of Rearch
Complete at least one course (min. 1 hour) in responsible research conduct, normally the following:

TBS Competencies and Development
Complete the following courses:
As early as the first semester of graduate study, a student in the TBS program must begin to engage in research under the supervision of a TBS graduate faculty, and register for credit hours of TBS 6940.
The path to complete the program will contain a series of defined milestones, which will be governed by the program rules as approved by the steering committee, and organized as follows:
Milestone 1: Demonstration of acquisition of the core competencies for translational biomedical sciences.
Milestone 2: Demonstration of the ability to conduct independent research and to communicate effectively the results of that work.
The culminating experience is normally a qualifying master’s exam. If approved by the steering committee, one of the following alternate demonstrations of research ability may be substituted for the exam:
- Significant participation in the design, data gathering, and writing of a peer-reviewed manuscript that has been accepted for publication.
- Major contributions to a well-known, referreed conference plus a publicly-announced talk inthe TBS Career Development Center.
