The Salk Institute provides an outstanding environment for graduate training. Approximately 100 students are currently pursuing Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees with Salk faculty. These students come to Salk laboratories via admission to graduate programs within the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and receive a degree from UCSD. The Salk Institute participates in an affiliated graduate program with the Division of Biological Sciences.
In addition, Salk faculty have affiliations with a number of other graduate programs at UCSD:
- Chemistry and Biochemistry
- Biomedical Sciences
- Cognitive Science
- Molecular Pathology
