PhD in Health Services Research - Admission Requirements

Admission Requirements

Admission is open to those with or without relevant post baccalaureate training although those with a Masters degree or relevant doctoral training are preferred. Regardless of disciplinary background,  applicants with a relevant Master's degree, as determined by the Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis, may petition to transfer credits to count toward the doctoral degree.

Students wishing to pursue graduate work in Health Services Research must complete a Brown University application. Materials are available at the Graduate School Website. Applicants are required to submit GRE exam scores (within five years, no minimum requirement). Other standardized tests (e.g., MCAT, LSAT) may not substitute for the GRE. Subject test scores can be submitted but are not required. TOEFL scores are required for a student whose native language is not English, but may be waived for those who hold a bachelors or masters degree from a US institution.


Application Deadline

Application materials are available directly from the Graduate School. The application for the fall 2016 term will open on September 1, 2015. The deadline for submitting an application is December 15, 2015.
