PhD students will be required to complete a minimum of 135 units (as per university requirements), including 45 course units exclusive of EPI 236 (Epidemiology Research Seminar), EPI 299 (Directed Reading), and EPI 399 (Graduate Research).
Graduate education at Stanford is a full-time commitment requiring full-time enrollment, typically at least 8 units during Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters. For PhD students, we require enrollment in 10 units per quarter. Please note that enrolling in more than 10 units in a quarter will lead to fee increases.
*All courses info can be found from the Stanford Bulletin Explore Courses website. Details of PhD program can be found in Education Handbook. Sample schedules are provided in appendix A.
Note: All PhD program core courses (EPI 225/226/227/259/261/262) must be taken for a letter grade.
