Track of Study

The BMS program provides a rigorous basic science curriculum to prepare students to reach their professional goals. All students in the Biomedical Sciences program are required to take the series of core basic science courses. In addition, at the time of application, students are required to select one of the following four certificate concentrations in which to take courses.

  • Health Administration - Business Emphasis
  • Health Administration - Leadership Emphasis
  • Health Administration - Public Health Emphasis
  • Health Professions Education    
  • Nutrition

An effort will be made to place students in the track of their choice; however, the Department of Interprofessional Healthcare Studies reserves the right to place students in a track as space allows.

After earning a certificate, students may choose to apply to the Master’s Degree Programs in Health Administration, Health Professions Education, and/or Nutrition.
