Biomedical Sciences

The Biomedical Sciences program is designed to promote integration of the various biomedical disciplines into a single graduate-level educational experience. It provides a broad background in coursework, while maintaining flexibility to meet the needs and interests of individual students looking to become more competitive for medical, podiatry, dental, veterinary, clinical psychology, nursing, physical therapy or physician assistant school, and advance their current biomedical sciences career. Both the Certificate in the Biomedical Sciences (18 credits) and the Master of Biomedical Sciences degree (30 credits) are available to start in the fall or spring semester. 

While our students have always benefited from a shared campus and faculty with Rowan-Virtua School of Osteopathic Medicine (Rowan-Virtua SOM), you can also take advantage of the Linkage Agreement with Rowan-Virtua SOM. 

Program Director:  Dr. Katharine Milani.
