The Master of Science in Biological Science (MBS) program combines the former one-year Medical Science Preparatory (MSP) program curriculum with the Master of Science in Biological Science (MBS) curriculum into a two-year Master’s program. Starting in Academic Year 2016-2017, the program curriculum will be offered as MS in Biomedical Studies (MBS) program. In the first year, students take advanced undergraduate courses in physics and chemistry, graduate courses in biochemistry, physiology, anatomy, psychology and laboratory techniques, and a year-long dedicated MCAT preparation course. At the end of the year, students sit for the MCAT and complete a summer research project. Students transition into the second year of the program after successful completion of the first year curriculum (minimum graduate GPA of 3.0 and all courses with passing grades). During the second year, students take rigorous coursework in biochemistry, physiology, cell biology and histology and neuroanatomical, utilizing the IMS medical school-equivalent lectures and laboratory materials, as well as an ethics and a professionalism course, to complete the MS degree.
