Stanford University Announcement of a new program:
Combined Admissions Mode in Biological and Biomedical Sciences
In addition to entering a given program directly, students may now opt to enter graduate study in the biological and
biomedical sciences through Combined Admissions Mode or CAM. This new program enables a small number of select
students to begin graduate study at Stanford University without first committing to a given department or program.
During the first year, following a series of “rotations” in different departments, CAM students select a thesis adviser
and program in which to complete the Ph. 0. The flexibility and breadth offered by CAM should appeal to those who
view two or more departments as equally attractive. Participating programs are:
Chemistry Developmental Biology
Microbiology and immunology
Molecular and Cellular Physiology
Medical Information Sciences
More information and application forms for CAM can be obtained from: Office of Graduate Admissions, Building 590,
Room 208, Stanford Unlverslty, Stanford, CA 94305-3052. Deadline for receipt of completed applications is
December 15,lQQQ. Stanford University is committed to the principles of Aftirmatiw Action and welcomes applications from students of either sex and any race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or national and ethnic origin.
