Membership Header

Membership in the Faculty of Health Sciences has several benefits beyond joining the community of Virginia Tech faculty members and collaborators dedicated to discovery and education in the health sciences.

First, FHS members are eligible to participate in the PhD Program in Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health as teachers, student mentors, dissertation advisors, and committee members. Such participation includes access to funding support for doctoral students in the program under the individual faculty member’s mentorship.

Second, FHS members receive access to information on an array of biomedical and health-science-related activities, facilities, and services at Virginia Tech. The FHS will provide an integrated site and data repository for Virginia Tech biomedical and health sciences related activities in research, education, and training for purposes of facilitating participating faculty applications for funding support where an overview of the activities, facilities, and personnel of the institution may benefit the application.

Finally, FHS members can take advantage of the program’s work in facilitating collaborative research, education, and training activities within Virginia Tech and between Virginia Tech faculty and potential collaborators at other institutions, including medical centers and health centers.
