Preclinical Sciences, M.S.
The Master of Science in Preclinical Sciences program is a one-year (32-week) curriculum composed of 31 credit hours of science courses addressing concepts that are foundational to the practice of medicine and to research in the biomedical field. The two primary goals of the MSPCS are to prepare graduates for careers in science teaching, academic laboratory research, publishing or policy-making, and to enhance the scientific knowledge of graduates who desire to pursue a Ph.D. in the biomedical sciences, a medical degree through either a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) program, or other degrees in healthcare, such as in pharmacy, physician assistantship or dentistry.
