Take the Next Step
PCOM’s Biomedical Sciences program is offered at PCOM (Philadelphia, PA), PCOM Georgia (Suwanee, GA) and PCOM South Georgia (Moultrie, GA). Students meeting academic success criteria have the option to complete
an accelerated, one-year program.
Students pursuing the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences degree complete foundation year coursework and then progress to one of several second-year degree concentrations including research, forensic biology and more.
Students who complete the foundation year and elect not to pursue a master of science
(MS) degree, may elect to receive a certificate of graduate study.
