Program Description:

Morehouse School of Medicine offers a unique approach to graduate study in Biomedical Sciences. The program comprises a core curriculum that provides a broad grounding in basic biomedical sciences followed by specialized training in one of a variety of medically-related research fields. Students in the program are often focused on careers in professional science dedicated to eliminating ethnic and socioeconomic health disparities. The program has particular strengths in research related to cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease (including HIV/AIDS), and neuroscience. Opportunities are also available in traditional biomedical sciences such as Biochemistry, Microbiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology. Additional opportunities exist to do cross-cutting research in two or more of these and other research areas. M.S. in Biomedical Research: This program provides a core-didactic and thesis-based curriculum for college graduates considering the pursuit of doctoral degrees in research or the health sciences or seeking a terminal,thesis-based Master's degree. The program will allow students to obtain a graduate degree; further explore career options in the biomedical sciences; document their ability to handle graduate-level coursework; and conduct a mentored research project in an area of interest to them. M.S. in Biomedical Technology: This is a non-thesis program for college graduates preparing for, or already engaged in, biomedical technology careers. The classroom curriculum resembles that of the thesis-based program. Beyond the classroom, students in this program will focus on gaining experience in developing and applying experimental design, and a variety of state-of-the-art methods and instrumentation. M.S. in Clinical Research: The Master of Science in Clinical Research is a broad-based multi-disciplinary graduate level program in clinical research. The program is designed to prepare clinical and translational research faculty, residents and others for a career in clinical research. The program provides training in the priniciples and methods of biostatistics, epidemiology, and outcomes research. Training in these areas include genetic and clinical trials; health services and health economics; and application of these principles/methods to clinical research. Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences Program: This interdisciplinary program provides a broad foundation in biomedical sciences and advanced training in specific sub-disciplines and disease related research in the student's area of interest. The goal of the program is to develop independent investigators for leadership in academic, government, and corporate biomedical research.
