The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MBS) program helps build students’ biomedical science background while strengthening their credentials for medical school. The combined MS-Biomedical Sciences/MPH pathway allows MBS candidates to explore public health as well. Students complete their MPH requirements during their second year of MBS studies and choose among the five MPH concentrations: Epidemiology/Biostatistics; Health Services Management and Policy; Nutrition; and Heath Communication. Pursuing the Global Heath concentration in this pathway requires special permission because of the challenges of scheduling that occur with this particular option.
Students interested in this option enroll in Epidemiology during the spring semester of the first year. Their studies continue for a second year, during which they complete the MPH requirements.
