Goals of the Curriculum

Upon successful completion of the Program, graduates will be able to:

  1. Comprehend and apply knowledge, analyze case studies and synthesize and apply the best available evidence as the basis for evaluating healthcare practices. (Critical Thinking).
  2. Collaborate and communicate with others using verbal, written and technological skills inherent to health care, healthcare professionals and healthcare scientists.  (Communication).
  3. Engage in professional practices that adhere to the concepts of integrity, ethics, life-long learning and patient advocacy (Professionalism).

Classes may be offered during the day, late afternoon or evenings.

For the research track, a laboratory research project and capstone project will be evaluated by a graduate committee composed of an outside advisor, a Larkin faculty member or the Dean.

Students must pass the comprehensive exam to receive their degree (see Comprehensive Exam and Graduation Requirements).


Progression Requirements

A student must maintain a cumulative GPA of a 3.0 or above to be considered in good standing.

Transfer Credits

Graduate coursework may be transferred for credits into the Biomedical Science program at the discretion of the Dean (Courses must have been taken in the last 5 years).
