Graduate Program

The Department of Urologic Sciences Graduate Studies program is a clinical department, with a solid grounding in research and experimental medicine. Under the direction of Dr. Mike Cox, the program enables clinician-scientists the opportunity to train in a leading research environment, with access to world-class facilities. Unlike traditional graduate programs, the program’s diversity and unconventional model attracts students from multiple disciplines and backgrounds.

The DUS, alongside the Vancouver Prostate Centre (VPC) is a National Centre of Excellence, offering cross-training in genomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, pathology, endocrinology, tumour biology, oncology, pharmaceutical sciences, imaging, clinical trials, and drug development.

Students in the graduate program have been awarded CIHR fellowships, scholarships from PCC, awards from the Prostate Cancer Foundation and have gone on to pursue careers in biomedical science.
