Forensic Biology Concentration

Combined training in the fields of biomedical sciences and forensic medicine provides students in the Forensic Biology Concentration with an array of engaging career options.

As the only forensic medicine program in the region that was developed and is overseen by a board-certified forensic pathologist, all within a medical school environment, PCOM's Master of Science (MS) in Biomedical Sciences with a concentration in forensic biology is uniquely positioned to prepare its graduates for success in the field.

Locations

This concentration is offered at the Philadelphia campus. Students at our Georgia locations who wish to pursue this option will be required to travel to the Philadelphia campus one weekend each month and complete a capstone project.
