The Masters of Biomedical Sciences degree at Larkin Health Sciences Institute is seeking regional and national accreditation.
Credits earned at Larkin Health Sciences Institute may not be transferable to other colleges or universities. Please, be advised that most Medical or Dental schools will not accept Masters Graduate courses as transferable credit for their professional school.
The Masters of Science in Biomedical Sciences program has been designed with the Pre-medical and Pre-dental applicants in mind. The curriculum contains coursework similar to that experienced in the first year of medical or dental school. Located in a hospital setting with direct access to residents, MDs, DOs and DDSs; students will experience hands-on training in real life scenarios. We also have fresh frozen cadavers (no formaldehyde) for our Gross Anatomy, Neuroanatomy and Research courses. Tissues will also be genetically analyzed for training in pharmacogenomics, microbial diversity and cancer genetics.
The Biomedical Sciences Program at Larkin University has a unique advantage due to its partnership with Larkin Community Hospital, one of only 8 teaching hospitals in the state of Florida.
Larkin Community Hospital has residency opportunities in primary care, ambulatory care, and psychiatric care with plans to expand its graduate medical education program, giving our students unique internship and shadowing opportunities that are only available at a teaching hospital.
Applying to medical school is competitive, and a Masters of Science degree could make the difference when it comes down to two candidates. The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) application process provides the applicant with an opportunity to describe their experiences in Academic Enrichment Programs including any post-baccalaureate training in programs like ours.
When you perform well in our program, you demonstrate to medical or dental schools that you possess the academic rigor to succeed in their program.
