Program Description

Medical history is filled with discoveries and advances into the nature of diseases and diagnostics, and our biomedical program is an essential and exciting field that continues to push out such advancements.  Biomedical Sciences students will investigate pressing medical conundrums such as the nature of cancerous cells, how microorganisms attack the body, and the correlation between gene expression and its affects on aging. By first laying down the groundwork with a meticulous study of human anatomy, students of the program will look at new and innovative therapies and treatments that address illness. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to learn about biomedical technology and innovation and offer versatility between theoretical and applied education.

Lower level classes will consist of other foundational programs such as biology, physics, chemistry, math and psychology, in addition to basic biomedical studies. Each subsequent year will have more advanced and refined offerings, so students will have the opportunity to choose from molecular biology, immunology, experimental design, systems biology, cancer biology, stem biology, critical thinking, and of course, advanced biomedical science.
