The Biomedical Sciences Program has been designed to prepare students to advance as biomedical scientists or health care professionals. Specifically, the curriculum has been designed to educate students through rigorous, graduate level science courses in order to strengthen their application for graduate and professional school. The core basic science courses are similar to those found in the first year of the medical/dental school curriculum. Program options are as follows:
- The12 month (Accelerated) Track is a rigorous curriculum designed for students who have already completed their undergraduate pre-med/ pre-dental preparation and want to enhance their qualifications for entrance into medical or dental school.
- The 18-month / 2-year Track is also designed to prepare you for acceptance to medical and dental schools, but at a slightly less rigorous pace than the 1-year accelerated program.
- The Research Track is designed for students who are currently employed in the health-care industry who seek advancement in their chosen field, those who wish to "cross-over" into the biomedical fields in industry or teaching, and those who are preparing for PhD programs.
Note: Track placement is determined by the Admissions Committee. Decisions about your admission and track placement are based on many factors, and include: previous academic coursework, scores on entrance exams and the pool of applicants for the program, among others.
