Our strong focus on research provides opportunities for our students to develop advanced skills in research project design, execution and analysis. You’ll learn how to effectively present your research in order to maximize impact and effect change. Our graduates have pursued careers in research and development, education, scientific writing, public health/epidemiology, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and other related careers.

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 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

At PCOM South Georgia, students meeting academic success criteria have the option to complete an accelerated, one-year program.
