Since 1959 when the Endocrinology-Reproductive Physiology Program was formally organized as a graduate degree granting program, we have trained more than 131 M.S. graduates and 163 Ph.D. graduates. Time to degree varies for each student depending on the completion of key course requirements, identification of a faculty advisor and development of a research project. The majority of students will be able to earn a M.S. degree within 2.5 years of full-time study and a Ph.D. degree in 5-6 years of full time study. The majority of students typically will have published in a peer reviewed journal prior to degree completion. It is not uncommon for our graduates to have more than two peer reviewed publications while enrolled.
We encourage you to keep in touch with us throughout your career by sending us an email, postal mail or phone call. Alumni may update contact information through the Alumni Directory at the Wisconsin Alumni Association web site.
