The Biomedical Science program at the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems applies fundamental biological research, analysis and technology to human health. The program educates students whose undergraduate education is in basic life sciences (e.g., biology) or paramedical disciplines in quantitative data analysis, mathematical modeling, systems analysis and informatics. For students entering with degrees in physics, mathematics, and/or computer science, the School, in close collaboration with the Department of Biology, provides the coursework needed to acquire proficiency in the life sciences. Master students can choose to include a 6 months co-op cycle as part of their studies. Students may also choose to enroll in concentrations such as biomedical technology development, biomaterials and tissue engineering, or bioinformatics. They can also specialize in neuroengineering, biomechanics or imaging and devices. Students who graduate with a master's degree from the biomedical science program often continue clinical training in medicine, dentistry, or veterinary medicine; pursue further graduate study toward the PhD degree; or work in industry in such fields as health care, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices, etc. The Biomedical Science program has an articulation with Interdepartmental Medical Science (IMS) at the Drexel College of Medicine, which can be pursued after taking one year of required classes. Applicants to the IMS program include students who are late in their decision to apply to medical school, students interested in improving their academic record before applying or re-applying to medical schools, or students who would like a year in a medical school setting before deciding whether medicine is the career for them.
