    Biomedical Sciences

    The Biomedical Sciences major is designed to enhance a student’s overall academic qualifications. All classes are preparatory coursework for professional school. Students will participate in foundational graduate courses that will help them to understand and use the primary literature of Biomedical Sciences. In addition to Master’s program courses, students will also study alongside first-year medical school students at the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (DCOM) in areas such as Medical Gross Anatomy, Histology and potentially Neuroanatomy.

    A total of thirty-seven graduate credit hours are the minimum requirement. Typical course schedules are listed below as an example. For more information regarding the Biomedical Professions major please contact Dr. Beverly Hamilton, BP Program Director, at [email protected]
