Welcome and Congratulations!
Congratulations on your acceptance to the CWRU MS in Medical Physiology program! We look forward to meeting and working with you this upcoming year. To get started, review the valuable information below - including next steps, important dates, and resources for admitted MSMP students. Do not hesitate to reach out to Director of Admissions, Samantha Baker, with additional questions.
Review the School of Graduate Studies' Important First Steps website. After accepting their offer of admission, all new students are directed to the New Student Checklist to complete items which will help launch their graduate education at CWRU.
Please review this information provided by the School of Graduate Studies (item #4) as well as the University's general COVID-19 website.
All members of the campus community must comply with the university policies regarding full COVID-19 vaccination - including booster doses when eligible.
Online students are exempt from the COVID vaccination/ proof of vaccination and testing requirements. However, if you plan to come to campus for any reason (or if you decide to become a resident student in subsequent semesters) the policies would apply to you.
All incoming students will receive an email from the School of Graduate Studies with instructions on how to activate their Case ID. Please do this ASAP. Your CWRU Network ID allows you access to university resources such as the campus wireless network and your CWRU email.
All incoming students are assigned to a faculty advisor with whom they will work during their time in the MSMP program to choose classes and strengthen their professional school applications.
- Spring & Summer students will be assigned to their faculty advisor before the term begins. The MSMP Admissions office sends out email notifications after the School of Graduate Studies adds the student to the Student Information System (SIS). Please reach out to your faculty advisor via email to arrange a meeting to discuss the courses you should take.
- Fall students will be assigned to their faculty advisor during Orientation in August. With few exceptions, all fall students will enroll in the same core classes. Please reach out to the Admissions office if you'd like to meet with a faculty member prior to the start of the fall term.
