During his or her graduate career, each student interacts successively with a Diagnostic Committee, a Qualifying Examination Committee, a Preliminary Examination Committee, and a Dissertation Committee. The membership of these committees is flexible, and may be completely overlapping. The committees are appointed by the Neuroscience Director in consultation with the student and research supervisor. The student’s research supervisor is a member of each of these committees, with the possible exception of the Diagnostic Committee in the case of a student without a laboratory affiliation during the first year.
