Certificate in Interdepartmental Medical Science
About the Program
Students pursuing the Interdepartmental Medical Science (IMS) certificate are afforded the opportunity to take actual first-year medical school courses. Applicants to the program must have already fulfilled undergraduate premedical requirements and demonstrated mastery of the material at a minimum grade of “C. ” These prerequisites include a year of biology, chemistry, physics and organic chemistry including respective laboratory sections. Students who feel that they have overcome their previous academic performance and can prove to medical schools that they can perform at a higher level are appropriate applicants to this program.
Master of Science in Medical Science Option
Those MS students who have at least a B average and wish to receive a graduate degree may continue for another year of training to complete the requirements for the Master of Science in Medical Science. The degree can be completed in one additional year and requires research (non-thesis).
The Master of Science in Medical Science Program is the second year of the Interdepartmental Medical Science (IMS) Certificate program. After successful completion of the IMS year (minimum 3.0 GPA in IMS) students are guaranteed admission into the MS in Medical Science program.
