In addition to conducting bioethics research, GREP students are eligible to take graduate-level courses through the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and shadow clinicians in nearly every area of the clinic.

4. Current unofficial college transcript

5. Two letters of recommendation from research mentors or undergraduate professors (addressed to Dr. Richard Sharp, Program Director). Letters should be emailed directly by the professor/mentor to bioethics@mayo.edu
