Biomedical Sciences, M.S.
The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MSBMS) Program at Mercer University School of Medicine is a two-year, research-based graduate program. Students will work closely with research mentors in either the Division of Biomedical Sciences on the Macon campus or in the Department of Biomedical Sciences on the Savannah campus. Seventy-five credit hours in biomedical sciences, including both classroom instruction and research comprise the MSBMS Program.
The MSBMS Program will prepare graduates for further postgraduate and professional studies in the biomedical sciences, employment in academic research and/or teaching, and research in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Following successful completion of a research thesis, students will be awarded the degree of Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences with a concentration in one of the disciplines represented by the Basic Sciences faculty on the Macon and Savannah campuses.
