It is the goal of UTHealth to attract first-rate researchers and provide them with an outstanding Postdoctoral training experience. The Postdoctoral Certificate Program serves to augment laboratory training to better prepare UTHealth Postdoctoral Fellows for their future endeavors in science. Each semester Postdoctoral Fellows will enroll in courses though the Registrar’s Office. To obtain a certificate of completion for this program, you will need to complete 4 required classes and 1 elective:
Each Postdoctoral Fellow can take up to 3 SCH per semester. Each class is worth 1 SCH and Supervised Research is 2 SCH. Postdoctoral Fellows are alternatively permitted to select any elective course from the UT System catalog to acquire more specialized knowledge or skills. To take these courses, contact Yasmin.Chebaro@uth.tmc.edu to discuss registration. Due to COVID-19, registration for these electives this semester is limited.
