Certificate of Graduate Study
Biomedical Sciences

The graduate program in biomedical sciences offers a certificate of post-baccalaureate graduate study (CGS) as a terminal award to students who, having completed the foundational (first year) curriculum, elect not to continue in one of the master of science (MS) degree completion concentrations. The certificate attests to the fact that the awardee has completed an integrated biomedical sciences curriculum.



All students enter the biomedical sciences program as candidates for the MS degree, and the majority do remain at PCOM either to attain their MS within the program or to pursue a professional degree in one of PCOM’s other programs, such as Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Doctor of Pharmacy or Physician Assistant Studies.
