Student Success Stories

As a recent graduate of the accelerated one year biomedical science program at Barry University; I appreciated the learning environment of small class sizes that allowed us to get to know the professors for a better learning environment. I have been accepted into dental school and am currently in my second semester. I was able to maintain an A average for the first semester and I credit that to the knowledge I gained at Barry University through the curriculum and the experience it gave me to make a better transition into dental school.

Barry University's BMS program was not only a great preparation for dental school but it was the reason I was accepted to Nova Southeastern College of Dental Medicine. The course selection was extremely challenging but with the right approach accompanied with the necessary hard work they can become very rewarding. I highly recommend this program for those students that are serious about their future but having trouble getting into highly competitive medical programs.

Barry University prepared me for dental school by not only solidifying my core scientific requirements, but also by introducing me to higher level subjects which gave me an edge during my first year. The curriculum was challenging, but rewarding and it acclimated me to an environment that parallels the rigors of dental school. Additionally, my classmates were highly motivated and always willing to help. I developed friendships that I am sure will be lifelong.

Words cannot describe how fortunate I am for making the decision to attend Barry University. Thanks to the Biomedical Sciences program and its wonderful faculty, not only was I prepared for admission to medical school, but even more importantly, in my opinion, is the amount of success I have experienced as a current medical student. All aspects of Barry University more than exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend this program to all prospective students who desire a career in healthcare.

Attending the Biomedical science master’s program at Barry University was probably one of the best decisions I’ve made in my academic career. Now as a 2nd year dental student I look back on my time at Barry and truly appreciate the curriculum, the resources and especially the faculty that has helped me to succeed in dental school. During my first year in dental school I was able to excel simply due to the knowledge I obtained while at Barry. Compared to others who went straight into dental school after their undergraduate program, I felt significantly more prepared for the course load dental school had in store for me than most of my other classmates. The courses during my 1st year and even some of my 2nd year in dental school, such as head and neck anatomy, histology, biochemistry, physiology, and pharmacology, have been made somewhat manageable because of the proper education and learning I received from the professors at Barry University. The BMS program at Barry was well worth attending and I’m truly grateful for all that the program has done to prepare me for dental school.
