As part of the EPI PHD application, applicants are asked to identify at least two faculty members with whom they would be interested in working. Applicants must select two EPI graduate faculty members from a drop down list. Applicants may "write in" one faculty name that may or may not be on the drop down list. At least one faculty member selected MUST have a primary appointment in the Department of Epidemiology. The drop down list in the application is populated with EPI Graduate Faculty Faculty Members only. Below is a list of faculty members who are available to mentor students matriculating Fall 2018. It is not necessary or required an applicant reach out to the faculty member prior to submitting an application.
