The MSBS program is a 9-month (30 semester hours) degree program designed to prepare students to enter professional education and/or advanced degree programs in the biomedical disciplines. The MSBS program aims to enhance the student’s academic record and competitiveness of his or her candidacy for a professional or graduate degree.
The MSBS program incorporates individualized counseling that supports acceptance into a doctoral or other health-related professional training program along with academic advising geared toward a successful transition to other graduate degree programs or careers in the biomedical sciences.
Graduates of the MSBS program will possess a strong foundation in biomedical sciences, with a specific focus on the application of these sciences to health professions. This program will afford students interdisciplinary academic training in biomedical sciences. The curriculum is designed to enhance the likelihood of academic success in a variety of graduate or professional school curricula. The primary goal of the RVU program is for students to matriculate into a graduate professional health or biomedical sciences degree program, although support is offered to students who decide to pursue other career tracks.
