Master of Science in Biomedical Science
The Georgia Campus - PCOM Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences provides an opportunity
for students with baccalaureate degrees to begin their graduate study in the biomedical
sciences as preparation for science careers or as additional preparation for professional
study. The program represents a broad content base in the basic biomedical sciences
with a strong emphasis on human medicine and clinical applications of the material.
A curriculum of foundation courses provides a unique interdisciplinary background
in biomedical sciences that may be applied in business, management or teaching careers,
or as preparation for professional school. A certificate of graduate study is awarded
for successful completion of all foundation (first year) courses and laboratory objectives.The
degree tracks build upon the foundation courses and can be completed in one of four
