The CAGT Program is an excellent program to apply to for a variety of reasons. Here are some quick facts about the program:

  • Since 2009, there has been a steady accumulation of program participants with more than 100 enrolled and averaging 10 students per year. This means each participant gets a highly individualized experience, further enriching their scientific research and academic career.
  • The CAGT program recruits many diverse participants from a variety of ethnicities and backgrounds - with a nearly equal distribution of males (44 percent) and females (56 percent) in the program.
  • The majority of past participants have gone on to a range of graduate programs making up 41 percent of our program alum entering: medical school (29 percent), Ph.D. programs (7 percent), and master's programs (5 percent).
