The Biomedical Sciences at University of Pittsburgh uses a strategic and individualized approach to enable a diverse range of students interested in health and biomedical sciences to become lifelong learners in their careers and graduate school pursuits.


About Biomedical Sciences at University of Pittsburgh

The Curriculum of the Biomedical Masters Program (BMP) has been designed to supplement, improve, and extend preparation for a career in biomedical sciences. The program emphasizes the development of thinking skills rather than the distribution of information. This will be done by covering a subset of key aspects of biomedical science topics emphasizing analytical, evaluative and scientifically creative thinking skills that will prepare our students for advanced biomedical training.

The curriculum is designed to achieve two major objectives:

  • Improve student preparation
  • Promote the development of individual and collaborative work and study habits appropriate for the health sciences

These goals will be achieved through an integrated series of  active-learning courses, exceptional experiential opportunities, and dedicated one-on-one advising, mentorship, and coaching, designed to enable students to successfully apply to and perform well in professional or graduate health science schools.
