Our interdisciplinary Biomedical Science program from Rutgers University is designed to meet the diverse needs of talented individuals who have an interest in pursuing a career in the biomedical sciences or a health related profession, especially medicine.


The comprehensive curriculum is tailored to students who have a solid undergraduate record but require additional coursework and guidance to achieve their goals.  In addition to coursework, the Master of Biomedical Science requires the completion of a mentored Capstone project.  Students may enter the program on either a full- or part-time basis.

In the Biomedical Science program from Rutgers University, students are required to take a number of courses focusing on the basics of medical sciences, such as Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, Microbiology & Immunology and Medical Biochemistry.  In addition, we plan to offer courses that take advantage of the strengths of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School such as Effects of Environment on Health and a Patient-Centered Medicine Seminar to round out the educational experience.


Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is dedicated to transforming health care for New Jersey and the nation through innovation and excellence in education, research, patient- and family-centered care and addressing the health of our diverse community.
