Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences
Looking for an edge to get you into a top notch medical or biomedical graduate school?
The Miller School of Medicine introduces a new intensive 12-15 month Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MiBS) designed to fit perfectly in your gap year. Our first cohort of students will begin Summer 2018.
MiBS is a full-time program that packs a core curriculum in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and physiology, along with several optional courses in three customized tracks – Medicine, Research or Drug Discovery. Our courses are taught by the same faculty that teach our medical and graduate students and will be tailored to meet your needs. In addition, students participate in physician and clinical shadowing or directed research to prepare you for a career in the biomedical sciences.
MiBS is a selective full-time program that prepares recent undergraduates for medical or graduate school or a career in the biomedical industry. Our master’s degree is an ideal way to use your gap year to build credentials and experience to propel yourself to any advanced degree. Students will have access to include hands-on faculty advising and mentoring to help you do your best and submit compelling applications. Students can begin our gap year program after their spring graduation and finish in time to start medical or graduate school the following August.
