Students who complete the Post-Baccalaureate Health Science Intensive Program are granted a Master of Science Degree in Biotechnology. This degree is grounded in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, and Molecular Biology. With this foundation in science, students select elective courses that match their personal career goals.
The science courses are designed so that graduates can participate fully in research; lead lab teams, help to make development and planning decisions, create and apply research modalities to larger schemes set in large research projects.
The non-science courses bridge the worlds between their roles as future physicians and members of a medical community, allowing for effective communications and decision making with colleagues as well as patients and families.
Three core science courses:
