  Introduction
 

 

 

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) of the Microbiology and Immunology Ph.D. program's primary goals are to:
 

  • improve communication between the student body and the graduate education committee (GEC),
  • help prepare students for their Qualifying Exams (QE), and
  • foster communication and social interaction among our students.

 

GSA officers are elected annually, allowing all students the opportunity to hold an officer position during their time in the graduate program. GSA officers meet with the GEC annually to provide feedback on course work, seminars and other important graduate program concerns. 

 

We provide students with the opportunity to hold a mock QE, during which senior graduate students act as committee members and ask both project specific and general knowledge questions in order to best prepare students for their official QE. 

 

We also sponsor happy hours for current students and rotation students at the end of each rotation.
