Why Choose Us

NSU's Master of Biomedical Sciences (M.B.S.) program was created by the same faculty who teach our medical students. Research shows that master's programs offered within a medical school environment can better prepare students to become proficient health professionals, while enabling students to build more competitive applications to medical school and other health professional schools. Moreover, master's programs in the biomedical sciences that include electives in other concentrations accelerate the personal and professional development of students.

Our interdisciplinary curriculum is unique amongst pre-professional programs. To help you fulfill prerequisite requirements, we offer a variety of undergraduate level pre-health courses. For those who have completed all health professional program course requirements, we offer graduate level courses taught by our medical school faculty and a test preparation course to enhance your standardized test taking skills. NSU houses cutting edge, externally funded research labs that will cultivate your research skills. Additionally, we encourage our health science-focused students to explore aspects of business through our partnership with the H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship.  

Similar to students in the NSU M.D. program, you will be introduced to a variety of teaching and learning methods such as small group learning (e.g., problem-based learning and team-based learning). You will gain foundational science knowledge with an emphasis on clinical correlation enhanced by the use of innovative teaching modalities. The intensive M.B.S. curriculum is aimed at preparing you for the rigors of medical school, dental school and other challenging health professions programs. To support you during and beyond the M.B.S. program, we will provide you with personalized goal-driven academic and career planning and advising to help you achieve your professional goals.
