The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is not required for applicants to the PhD Program in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry.

It should be noted that the department does not accept applications to do PhD work with specific faculty. The normal process is to apply to the Medicinal Chemistry Program through the Rackham Graduate School , as described on the College of Pharmacy Admissions Page. Your application will then be considered, along with all other applications that we will receive.  Decision notification letters are sent out throughout the review process starting after December 15, with the final letters sent by April. During their first year, our students perform two research rotations in labs of Medicinal Chemistry faculty. At the end of the winter term, they are then matched with a faculty member who will mentor them through their PhD studies.
