Research/Thesis Concentration

The PCOM Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences provides an opportunity for students with baccalaureate degrees to study the biomedical sciences as preparation for science careers or professional study. All students enter the program as candidates for the two year master of science degree. The first year of the program presents a broad content base in the basic biomedical sciences with a strong emphasis on human medicine and clinical applications of the material, followed by a concentration in the second year.

Degree completion concentrations are offered in biomedical research (thesis), organizational leadership in the biosciences, public health, and forensic biology. A non-thesis master of science in advanced topics in biomedicine, a two year thesis research option and the organizational leadership in the biosciences concentration are also available at PCOM’s Georgia Campus. All first year courses are required. Students must declare the concentration by the end of their first year.
