Doctoral: Teaching Experience

The PTX Graduate Group strongly recommends that students acquire teaching experience in pharmacology or toxicology. In order to satisfy the teaching experience requirement, the student is expected to:

  1. Participate in teaching and course administration for a minimum of one academic quarter in a course preferably taught by a member of the PTX Graduate Group. This participation must include at least one hour of teaching a formal lecture, leading a class discussion and/or laboratory component, and help with exam generation and grading.
  2. Formally register for 1-3 units (depending upon the department) of PTX 297T/ETX 396 or the equivalent during the quarter in which the student is gaining formal teaching experience.
  3. Receive a satisfactory grade in the PTX 297T/ETX 396 course.
