This coursework helps students understand fundamental concepts of biomedical sciences. Students also learn to access and interpret data, solve complex problems and communicate scientific information. The knowledge and skills gained through these graduate-level studies can be applied to various biomedical science jobs.

Jobs for Biomedical Science Majors
  1. Research and development - Research skills are a vital component of PCOM’s Biomedical Sciences Program. Students in the Biomedical Research Concentration will develop advanced skills in planning and executing complex research projects.
  2. Forensic scientist - The ability to analyze evidence, prepare accurate reports and expertly communicate complex information are essential skills for forensic scientists. The Forensic Biology Concentration combines biomedical science and forensic medicine to prepare graduates for various investigative and scientific positions.
  3. Clinical research coordinators - The duties of a clinical research coordinator include managing clinical trials, monitoring research and maintaining detailed records. Clinical research coordinators must have exceptional organizational and interpersonal skills.
  4. Pharmaceutical or medical sales - This highly competitive field requires exceptional people skills, a broad base of scientific knowledge, the ability to explain complex concepts in easy-to-understand terms and a drive to succeed.
