Saint Xavier University's Medical Sciences degree program is a pre-medical master's degree designed to help you demonstrate to medical sciences programs that you have the academic ability to succeed and thrive in their rigorous curricula.


While some students begin medical school immediately after graduating from college, the majority of students in health sciences programs take a year or more to further develop their academic, professional and personal qualifications before applying. There are many ways to invest in your individual development during these years.


Although most students enter The Medical Sciences master's program at Saint Xavier University, in pursuit of professional school admission, some graduates find other health care career paths more suitable.

 If that happens after your first year of medical school, it will be a costly experience without obtaining any academic credentials.
