Graduate Student Data

The graduate data is based on students in biomedical sciences track PhD’s, including those with the combined Master’s degree in Epidemiology. It does not include MD/PhD students.

Note: Because our graduate training is closely linked to various programs and departments at the University of Washington, the graduate student data is not complete and only provides a snapshot of those students who train at Fred Hutch; it is not part of the coalition data set.
