Application and Admission Requirements
To be admitted to the Masters in Biomedical Sciences Program with Regular status, applicants must hold an earned baccalaureate (or equivalent) from an accredited college or university, and have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Typically, applicants will have an undergraduate major in Biology or a related discipline such as Biochemistry or Biophysics. Students with other majors such as Chemistry or Physics are encouraged to apply, however, their coursework should include several semesters in biology. In addition, Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores of 1100 (combined Verbal and Quantitative scores) and 4.5 (Analytical Writing Test) are recommended or a minimum composite Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) of 22. These requirements may be waived for special individual circumstances. We also require three letters of recommendation. For all applicants, laboratory research experience is highly recommended.
The program will accept two students a year and applications are considered for Fall semester entrance only. The application deadline is May 1st.
