CWRU MSTP Steering Committee

The MSTP Steering Committee currently consists of faculty members from various basic science and clinical departments. The committee meets monthly and oversees program operation. The MSTP Steering Committee members are also directly involved with the selection and evaluation of the MSTP candidates. The Steering Committee makes admission decisions that are honored by the Graduate School and the School of Medicine.

The committee approves the selection of PhD thesis advisors and PhD thesis committees, and it reviews academic and research performance of MSTP trainees. Steering Committee members are also mentors and role models for the MSTP students and are always willing to respond to students' needs or questions via e-mail, phone, or drop-in visits.

MSTP students should choose one of the basic science representatives to the Steering Committee to be a member of their PhD Thesis Committee.
