Committee on Graduate Studies (COGS)

From Radiological Sciences

The Committee on Graduate Studies (COGS), made up of the FACULTY, acts on such matters as curriculum procedures, admission of students, and other pertinent policy considerations for the Graduate Program in Radiological Sciences.

The Chairman of COGS, is elected by the COGS membership. This committee membership also includes a student representative, elected by the students who acts as a liasion, informing the students regarding activities of the Radiological Sciences Program. The student representative is elected each August by the graduate students in Radiological Sciences and serves a one year term beginning in September.

There are 11 standing subcommittees of the COGS that take care of the business of The Graduate Program between COGS meetings. Membership of these committees is reviewed on an annual basis with the COGS giving its approval. The following reports are given at each COGS meeting:

Applications for new faculty members to The Graduate Program can be considered at any COGS meeting throughout the year. Any active member of the COGS may sponsor a new faculty member by writing a letter to the COGS Chair, explaining the role that the new faculty member would play, providing a CV and other documentation of the candidate’s qualifications to fulfill the proposed role. Membership is determined by majority vote of the COGS. The Program Director then submits paperwork to the GSBS for appointment to the GSBS faculty and to the Medical School for appointment to the Radiology Department faculty in the Medical School. The GSBS initiates a background check and an official transcript is requested from the institution which granted the new faculty member her/his most advanced degree.

GSBS requirements and special requirements of The Graduate Program are summarized in the “Guide for Graduate Studies in Radiological Sciences”. This guide is updated following the annual curriculum review and distributed to all faculty and students formally accepted into The Graduate Program. The office of the Dean of the GSBS also provides documents to assist students in preparing submissions of dissertations and theses. The Registrar of the University maintains official matriculation records for students. In addition, The Graduate Program maintains a database on the progress of graduate students through requirements of the program. Databases will be available to reviewers within the legal restrictions of the requirements for privacy.
