Biomedical Science

The undergraduate degree in biomedical science prepares students for a growing number of careers and graduate programs, from scientists in healthcare, government, and industry, to graduate level healthcare programs (e.g., allopathic medicine, epidemiology, osteopathic medicine, physician assistant, public health, physical therapy, or occupational therapy).  The program combines a strong foundation in general sciences with special emphasis in anatomy, physiology, pathology, and mechanisms of disease.  Students will graduate with a strong understanding of the biological and chemical systems in the human body.
