University of Wisconsin–Madison


Dear Prospective Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in the Endocrinology & Reproductive Physiology graduate program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison!  Our program focus is in the areas of endocrinology and reproductive physiology, and as such a background in the biological sciences is a priority. We do not place specific requirements on entering students due to the breadth of our program faculties (endocrine studies from whole animal physiology through molecular and cellular signaling).  However, applicants should be aware that our core course requirements include intermediate and advance biochemistry and cell biology in addition to endocrine and reproductive physiology.  A copy of our first year PhD course requirements is available as a pdf file. Applicants with strengths in these areas will be more likely to both be admitted and match to an advisor.  Further admission requirements are listed below.  We also urge you to look at our current students biosketches  and view our annual Symposium Booklet to get a feel for the kind of studies you are likely to undertake.

Please note, our application deadline for Fall 2019 is December 1, 2018.

How to Apply:

The Endocrinology & Reproductive Physiology program is a member of the Biomedical Graduate Program Consortium.  Our admissions process is outlined on the Consortium’s admissions website.

NIH Required Data:

As a National Institutes of Health training grant funded PhD program, we are required to provide all applicants with information on our acceptance rates and time to degree completion. This information is available here.
