The Pathway Program in Forensic Medicine is designed for individuals who have an undergraduate degree and who wish to enter a full master's degree program but lack a background in the sciences. This 14 week program provides that science foundation for master's degree enrollment.
It is a 14-week (May-August), intensive program, that provides a solid foundation in biology, human anatomy and physiology as related to forensic medicine. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be prepared to transition into PCOM's Master of Science in Forensic Medicine Program.
Typically, our enrolled students have backgrounds as:
- Criminal Investigators
- Law Enforcement Professionals

Work experience is not necessarily required to enter the program and we do accept recent college graduates.
