Expectations of Epidemiology Graduate Students

The SMD office of Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs has published expectations for graduate students, which can be found here: https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/education/graduate/home/forms/expectations-graduate-students.aspx

Some additional guidelines:

  • Strategies to obtain funding to carry out the proposed dissertation or thesis research, if needed, should be discussed with your committee chair and approved by the Program Director.
  • Discussion of program-related matters or activities on social media (e.g. Facebook) is discouraged. University guidelines for personal use of social media by individuals affiliated with the university can be found here: https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/connect/social-media-toolkit/personal-use-guidelines.aspx
  • PhD-EPI students are expected to attend departmental seminars and student presentations.
