Certificate in Medical Science Preparatory Program
The Certificate in Medical Science Preparatory (MSP) is a one-year semester-based program designed to help students enhance their credentials for application to medical school by improving their science background and MCAT scores. Students in the MSP program have completed the premedical science requirements but need to enhance their science preparation to take or retake the MCAT. Those students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of program completion.
Medical Science Preparatory Curriculum
Students in the Medical Science Preparatory program take four graduate level courses in anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology, and physiology. Also included are undergraduate level courses in physics and chemistry, a laboratory component, and participation in community service activities. In addition, a formal MCAT preparation course is offered.

Master of Science in Biological Science Option
Those who complete the program with a B average or higher and and take MCAT are guaranteed admission to the MBS program for the following year. Those who complete the degree requirements during this second year receive an MS degree. Although students in good academic standing have the option of returning for the second year, they are not required to do so.
