Master of Biomedical Sciences

About Biomedical Sciences

The Master of Biomedical Sciences (M.B.S.) is a program for students to demonstrate that they can be successful in either the Nova Southeastern University's osteopathic medical or dental programs. Students are trained in human biology and medicine to improve their academic credentials in order to be considered for admission to our professional schools. Those enrolled in this program take basic science courses, along with dental and osteopathic medicine students. Courses offered include gross anatomy, histology, neuroanatomy, biochemistry, microbiology, physiology, pathology and pharmacology.

Students who have successfully completed one year in this program will be considered for admission into the College of Dental Medicine or the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Nova Southeastern University, pending a completed application to the respective program. M.B.S. students who have successfully finished two years of this program will receive the master's degree and then will be considered for admission to the College of Osteopathic Medicine or College of Dental Medicine after completing an application to the professional program.

The Master of Biomedical Sciences degree program is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
