Larkin University seeks to develop an academic community engaged in teaching, research, scholarship and service that provides an opportunity for individuals aspiring to health science careers to prepare for professional studies in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, veterinary, podiatry and research.
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES
The Master’s of Science in Biomedical Sciences at Larkin University is an innovative one-year professional master’s degree which prepares our students for professional studies in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy or biomedical research. Students in the program will progress through a sequence of graduate level course work based on USMLE Step 1 content and outcomes. The curriculum includes multidisciplinary research, case study presentations, group projects and external shadowing and observation. Our relationship with Larkin Community Hospital system provides opportunities for our students to closely observe the practical aspects of health care. In the program our students take a required professional development course. This course will prepare students to develop and compose applications, personal statements, curriculum vita/resumes, and cover letters necessary for successful application and matriculation to professional schools. Students will identify their strengths, skills and experiences that are most beneficial to their personal school professional choices. Students will learn the value of volunteering and shadowing experiences and be provided with opportunities to do so. Practice presentations, role playing, traditional and multiple mini interviews (MMI) will be conducted to allow students to improve chances of acceptance.
Our students also participate in anatomical dissections of fresh frozen cadavers at the world renowned Miami Anatomical Research Center (MARC).
LU is accredited through the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (AC/CS).
We are not yet able to offer Title IV funding through US Department of Education but we do offer funding through Sallie Mae, iHelp and other sources.
