Designed to maximize student success, our program is modeled after the first-year curriculum of a health professions school and is different from traditional graduate coursework. We complement our curriculum with areas such as exam preparation, clinical experiences and research designed to stand out in the application process. We take pride in our small class size where students and faculty get to know and learn together. The diversity of Miami is reflected in our student body, and we have found we are better people from learning about each other’s cultures. The Master’s in Biomedical Sciences program delivers to students a competitive edge in applying to health professions degree programs and beyond
