[edit] Student Representatives

Pamela Myer, a PhD student in Radiation Therapy Physics, is currently the elected Student Representative to the Radiological Sciences Graduate Program.

[edit] Admission Requirements & Procedures

THE GRADUATE PROGRAM encourages inquires from prospective students. The Program Director will send a reply, typically by e-mail, that informs the prospective student of application deadlines, admission requirements, academic backgrounds expected and the competitive nature of the admission process.

The general GSBS admission requirements are: a Bachelor’s Degree, a cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of at least a 3.0, GRE score of at least 1000 (sum of verbal and quantitative scores). Foreign students who have not completed studies in an English-speaking country are required to have one of the following minimum TOEFL scores (computerized test: 220; paper test: 560; iNet: 68).

Graduate Program prerequisites include a bachelor’s degree in a natural science or engineering is highly recommended. Degrees in other disciplines will be considered providing that the applicant has received sufficient science and mathematics course credits to give the applicant the equivalent of a minor in a natural science or engineering discipline.

[edit] Registration

At the beginning of each academic year, students are provided with an Academic Schedule of Events for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Prior to the semester, students are given a course schedule. The student will register for courses online via the UTHSCSA Portal.

Students should consult their Graduate Adviser to select specific courses for each semester. Individual Instructors will give student permit numbers to enroll in their classes. For some classes, notably Research, Thesis and Dissertation, students can obtain permit number via email to the Graduate Program's Academic Coordinator in the Radiology Education Division office.

[edit] Teaching Assistantships (TAs)

A limited number of teaching assistantships (TAs) are offered each Fall semester to students who have been accepted into the program. Special Students are not eligible for teaching assistantships. The Graduate Program in Radiological Sciences does not offer funding to students pursuing a Master's degree.

Upon acceptance for a TA, students are notified in writing of the amount of funding for the academic year as follows:

Year Gross Salary Benefit Package Total Compensation
Years I-V $24,783 $2,478 $27,261

These salaries are based on the Health Science Center's estimate of students' cost of living, which includes tuition and fees, and may change from year to year. In addition to this salary, TAs are eligible for participation in the Health Science Center's optional student health insurance program. Out-of-state students with Teaching Assistant positions also are charged tuition and fees at the in-state rate. These basic benefits may be included in the TA benefit package and give total compensation in excess of $28,000.
