Comparative and Experimental Medicine (MS and PhD) is a jointly-administered graduate program intended to prepare students for teaching and/or research careers in the health sciences. This program emphasizes the comparative approach to the study of biomedical science. The PhD program is open to approved graduate students seeking training in this area and is especially useful for individuals with professional degrees. For the student with an undergraduate biological science background, the Comparative and Experimental Medicine program provides an unusual opportunity to study disease processes common in humans and animals from a multidisciplinary perspective. The scope of this intercollegiate program, which pools faculty resources from both veterinary and human medicine, is broadened by faculty members representing animal science and numerous areas of the life sciences. The interdisciplinary training environment includes such diverse support as facilities and personnel at the Veterinary Medical Center, the University of Tennessee Medical Center at Knoxville, life sciences departments, College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, College of Engineering, and The Department of Nutrition.

Comparative and Experimental Medicine - Graduate School of Medicine - Participating departments include Anesthesia, Medicine, Medical Genetics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Radiology, and Surgery.

Comparative and Experimental Medicine - Veterinary Medicine - Participating departments include Animal Science, Comparative Medicine, Microbiology, Nutrition Pathobiology, Large Animal Clinical Sciences, and Small Animal Clinical Sciences. See Microbiology for additional courses.
