Course of Study - Overview
PiN leadership has carefully crafted the course of study of PiN students to create a balance between formal classroom work and lab experience. First-year students spend approximately 50% of their time on course work and 50% of their time in lab rotations. After the second year, students have the option of taking any Harvard or MIT course that they feel would benefit their training. In addition, students have access to "nanocourses"; these courses address a particular topic in depth, and may last anywhere from two to ten hours (spread over several days).
