About the Campbell University MSBS Program

The Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine 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.

While the MSBS program provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate academic capability, it does not ensure admission to a professional school, including  Campbell University professional programs.

What You'll Experience as an MSBS Student

  • Individualized advising approach supporting students in all aspects of the program as well as the health professional school application process
