MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Office of Diversity and Student Affairs (DSA) aim to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation of historically underrepresented groups in our PhD, MD/PhD and MS programs. The DSA is continually expanding existing efforts to ensure that our student body reflects the diverse populations of Houston and the United States. The DSA houses several diversity programs, including the newly minted program “The Academy at GSBS”. The Academy at GSBS aims to introduce a diverse group of pre-matriculated students to the rigor of graduate school. More information about our diversity programs and initiatives can be found here:
