The College of Osteopathic Medicine offers a Master of Science in Medical Health Sciences (MS). The program is a degree-granting medically-oriented program designed to enrich the academic knowledge base and skills of prospective medical students while strengthening their credentials for admission to medical school. The program provides students with a rigorous education consisting of 30-31 credits of graduate level biomedical courses. The twelve-month program is comprised of basic science medical courses, and a graduate biomedical science core in advanced cell biology and genetics.
For the basic medical science component of the program, students attend gross anatomy and embryology, medical biochemistry, and medical physiology courses taught by faculty from the College of Osteopathic Medicine. This provides an important learning experience for the students while establishing a critical evaluation tool in determining students’ abilities to handle medical school.
An important component of the program is the inclusion of ancillary support services to help the students’ application to medical or professional schools through provisions for an MCAT test bank, tutorials in medical interviewing, and tutoring services.
