    Linkage to Professional Schools

    This LMU degree program is a collaborative effort among the LMU Master of Science Program, the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (DCOM), and the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM). Faculty from these areas work together to provide students with graduate courses and research opportunities. Through the LMU-MS Program, students have the opportunity for either a conditional acceptance (AS, BMS) or guaranteed interview (AS, BMS, VBIO) depending on what parameter each student falls under.
