Master of Biomedical Science Program Welcomes New Class at Carey

Hattiesburg, Miss., August 1, 2013 -  William Carey University welcomed a new class to the Master of Biomedical Science (MBS) program on July 31.

The MBS program at WCU was established in 2009 to offer post baccalaureate students an opportunity to pursue graduate studies in biomedical sciences. The program provides preparation for the professional study of medicine – both osteopathic (DO) and allopathic (MD) -  as well as dentistry, and many other health-related sciences. The program also offers students a versatile non-thesis master’s degree that can be used for career preparation in biomedical research, science education, and preparation for doctoral studies in the biomedical sciences.
 

Graduate students in the MBS program will take courses alongside first-year medical students in WCU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine (WCUCOM). The MBS degree is part of WCU’s school of natural and behavioral sciences. This year, 21 students were accepted into the intense, one-year program.

The 2013-2014 MBS class includes William “Kolby” Ball, Marianna, Ark.; Blayne Beene, Marianna, Ark.; Mohit Chhatpar, Massapequa Park, N.Y.; Prasenjeet Das, West Chester, Ohio; Joseph Davenport, Pensacola, Fla.; Christopher Dedeaux, Gulfport; Jeffrey Griffis, Starkville; Justin Ha, Los Angeles, Ca.; Timothy David Kahler, Hattiesburg; Anna Catherine Love, Murfreesboro, Tenn.; Dexter Matrana, Kenner, La.; Lee McCraney, Enterprise; Sidney McClendon, Hattiesburg; Anna Morris, Columbia; Maylen Musgrove, Laurel; Albert Nguyen, Happy Valley, Ore.; Joseph Prechter, New Orleans, La.; Loren Touma, Oviedo, Fla.; Amber Williamson, Blue Mountain; Deborah Wirawan, Fresno, Ca., and Rachel Zwiebel, Ocean City, N.J.
