Master of Science in Medical Sciences

The Master of Science (MS) in Medical Sciences is a broad, interdisciplinary degree program that draws on the academic and research expertise of the College of Medicine Basic Science Departments. The MS in Medical Sciences may be used as a stand-alone degree by students seeking career enhancement in fields such as basic biomedical research, the pharmaceutical industry, or the health science professions; by students seeking credentials in the biomedical sciences as a preliminary to applying for medical school or other health sciences professional programs; or by students seeking to enhance their knowledge base prior to choosing a career direction.  The program can be completed in 18 to 24 months.

The MS in Medical Sciences may also provide supplemental or joint training for practitioners in the health professions (physicians, dentists, pharmacists) or students in professional health science programs, based on individual career goals and research training needs.
