Annual Committee Meeting

After successfully passing the propositional/oral exam, the student and advisor should select a research advisory committee consisting of at least two other members of the MGMI Program faculty plus one individual familiar with the student's field of research from outside the Program, preferably from outside the institution. The membership of the committee must be approved in writing by the Program Director and the Associate Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and communicated to the Program Academic Standing Committee using the Approval of Examination/Dissertation Defense Committee Membership form. The student's research advisor will serve as chair of this committee, and will be responsible for calling meetings of the committee.

This committee should meet to review the student's progress at least once each year and submit an Annual Research Advisory Committee Meeting form to the MGMI Academic Standing Committee.
