Learn more about our community!

At Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, we are proud of our diverse and vibrant school community, nested within the dynamic city of Worcester, Massachusetts. As of fall 2022, our student body is 359 students strong, including 64 incoming PhD students and 8 incoming MD/PhD students. 

Our students are well-published and have earned prestigious awards, including 7 Weintraub Awards, 7 Howard Hughes Medical Institute Predoctoral Fellowship Awards and numerous National Research Service Award Predoctoral Fellowships. In fact, it is becoming increasingly common for students to obtain external awards for research training, in addition to the generous financial package UMass Chan offers.

Beyond excelling in the classroom and lab, our students are involved in a wide range of student organizations, from groups related to diversity and advocacy to volunteerism, sports and community gardening. Students are encouraged to get involved in or even start their own group as they create their own unique graduate school experience and work toward their degree.
