The Biomedical Science MBS program has been designed to help you enhance your academic credentials and prepare for entrance to a health professional school or biomedical career. This one-year master's program will provide a foundation in biomedical coursework that underlies and supports medicine and therefore provides a strong framework for professional school curricula.
The online delivery of this program is simply an extension of the on-campus course delivery. Your UNC diploma and transcripts will not denote online delivery in any way, and the learning outcomes are the same for all MBS students. Our small student groups also mean you will receive strong personal support and advisement.

University of Colorado School of Medicine
University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine

The MBS program is appropriate for students considering a future in medicine, dentistry, pharmaceuticals, veterinary medicine or biomedically-related Ph.D. programs. A major goal of the program is to allow students a tangible mechanism to demonstrate high-level academic achievement while taking a full load of rigorous and challenging courses. Success in this intensive educational scenario (which mimics the demands of professional school) will help you...
Our students have seen an increase in their overall MCAT scores and an average of a 1.5 increase in their biological sciences scores. Students with an MBS degree have also pursued careers not related to professional school, including clinical research, university teaching, cardiac rehabilitation, research at the NIH, and Ph.D. programs.
