WCU's Master of Biomedical Science Program Welcomes New Class
Hattiesburg, Miss., August 8, 2012 - William Carey University welcomed a new class to the Master of Biomedical Science (MBS) program on Friday, August 3.
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), 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. Twenty students are accepted each year into the intense, one-year program.
