Biomedical Sciences, Master of Science Degree Curriculum

The broad foundation of the first academic year in the basic biomedical sciences, coupled with the more detailed and demanding courses of the second academic year, will provide graduates with the knowledge and credentials to gain placement at a variety of academic institutions, hospitals and medical education facilities throughout the world. Students interested in a career in osteopathic medicine, dental medicine or pharmacy will have the opportunity to matriculate directly at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. Those students seeking a career in dentistry, medical science, physical therapy or a wealth of other career opportunities will be supported with letters of recommendation, interview counseling and one-on-one career guidance from their academic adviser.
