Overview

 Key info

This program is designed for students who have all of their core coursework and extracurricular prerequisites for medical, dental or other health-related fields, but otherwise have a comparatively limited science background (non-science majors with only the pre-health curricular core, for example), modest grades in the sciences as undergraduates, and/or also need to improve their Medical College Admission Test, Dental Admission Test, or other pre-professional scores. This is a 9-month full-time program that begins each fall semester. Most classes are held at George Mason University 's Science and Technology Campus in Manassas, Virginia with cadaveric anatomy labs held at GUMC.

The  Advanced Biomedical Sciences (ABS) graduate certificate at George Mason University may be pursued on a full-time basis in either a lecture-based format or a hybrid format using recorded lectures and a discussion-based classroom experience. The program is premium-priced with no tuition distinction between the in-state or out-of-state residency status.

This certificate program qualifies for Title IV Federal Financial Aid.
