TPCB students form a close-knit group within the broader Tri-Institutional research community. Our students arrive on campus during the summer of the first year, providing them with an opportunity to settle into the research environment and neighborhood and to get a feel for living in New York City before beginning classes in the fall semester. At the end of the summer, our students also participate in the Orientation activities of the broader graduate programs at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Our students receive a generous graduate stipend that readily accommodates the cost of living in NYC and allows them to focus on their research as well as to enjoy life outside of the lab. The program also covers all tuition and fees, and health insurance coverage is provided for both students and their dependent children. Further, students receive an individual research allowance annually that may be used for travel to scientific conferences, a laptop or tablet computer, scientific textbooks, and other research resources.
The program provides all students with subsidized housing that is either on-campus or nearby in the neighborhood. Situated in the desirable Upper East Side of Manhattan, the program is located in a comfortable and safe neighborhood that provides a community feel, numerous local dining and shopping options, and easy access to restaurants, entertainment, sporting events, and sightseeing throughout the rest of New York City. Our students enjoy the convenience of living close to their research labs while also taking full advantage of the unparalleled cultural opportunities that NYC has to offer!
