Welcome to The Graduate College!

The pursuit of science is more than just obtaining a degree. It is understanding the gravity of the pursuit, its implications for the future health of the nation, as well as the sheer thrill of discovery. Just imagine what it must feel like to discover a new fact that could significantly affect the lives of future patients, and then recognize that you are the only person in the world that knows about it. At Rush, this happens every day. The faculty of The Graduate College understand this pursuit, and more importantly, know how to show others how to do it. We understand that discovery is both noble and humbling while at the same time intellectually stimulating and just plain fun. We attempt to organize our program around these principles with focus on patient. It is truly a unique environment.
