Scripps Research's doctoral program requires highly motivated individuals who thrive on challenges. There are no specific prerequisites; however, applicants should demonstrate good undergraduate training in the biomedical sciences or a related field and a strong commitment to research.

The program is bicoastal and applications are reviewed by an admissions committee composed of faculty from both the Florida and California campuses. As a result, applicants may receive an offer of admission from one or both campuses. To be considered for admission, applicants must interview at the campuses from which they wish to gain admission. Admission standards are the same for the California and Florida campuses, the joint Skaggs-Oxford Program, and the Florida Atlantic University-Scripps Florida MD/PhD Program.

A wide range of perspectives and experiences is essential for educational and scientific excellence. Scripps Research strongly encourages applications from underrepresented and underserved students and does not discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, sex, citizenship or disability.

Scripps Research and the University of Florida (UF), a top-10 public university, have initiated discussions concerning a potential partnership as it relates specifically to the Scripps Research campus in Jupiter, Florida, distinct from the California campus. In the weeks ahead, we will examine the possible integration of our Jupiter campus with UF, which would combine their complementary strengths in biomedical research and education. We anticipate that all students who choose to work with investigators on the Florida campus will continue to be enrolled in and receive degrees from the Skaggs Graduate School of Chemical and Biological Sciences at Scripps Research, which will continue to oversee bicoastal coursework and research training throughout their doctoral studies.
