"Research Doctorate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences: Selected Findings from the NRC Assessment" examines data on the biomedical sciences programs to gather additional insight about the talent, training environment, outcomes, diversity, and international participation in the biomedical sciences workforce. This report supports an earlier publication, "A Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States," which analyzes data and rankings from more than 5,000 doctoral programs, 982 of which were in the biomedical sciences. "Research Doctorate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences" explores questions about degrees and completion rates as they relate to GRE scores, student funding, program facilities, diversity among faculty members, and other variables. The report examines 11 biomedical science fields including cell and developmental biology, genetics and genomics, microbiology, nutrition, and physiology, among others.
