The Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine (CUSOM) Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MSBS) program is a rigorous two-year graduate degree program designed for applicants who need to enhance either their academic record or standardized test scores for admission to health professions programs. This program couples a challenging curriculum with personalized student advisement. The program is designed to attract individuals from rural areas, low-socioeconomic status backgrounds, and underrepresented minorities, however acceptance is not limited to individuals from these groups. Acceptance into the MSBS program does not guarantee admission into any of the Campbell University professional programs.Apply Now
Students immerse themselves in coursework comparable to the first year of medical school, taught by CUSOM faculty members. Students’ academic success will demonstrate their readiness for medical and other health professional schools. The program also includes a dedicated semester-long standardized test-preparation course offered by Kaplan Test Prep.
The MSBS program focus extends beyond academics to support the growth of a well-rounded applicant by providing opportunities for community service, shadowing opportunities and medical mission trips. A holistic advisement approach helps students refine all steps of the health profession school application process.
Our curriculum is designed to equip you with the skills necessary to become an effective contributor in the growing health sciences industry. While the MSBS program provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate academic capability, it does not assure admission to a professional school. For further information including course descriptions please see the MSBS Academic Bulletin.
