The Biomedical Sciences Research Master's Program at EVMS provides students with laboratory experience and a strong foundation of biomedical science knowledge. Key advantages of this program include a broad-based interdisciplinary curriculum, personalized program of study, and close interaction with the faculty. Research focus areas include: cancer, cardiovascular biology, diabetes, infectious disease, neuroscience, and reproductive biology. Established in 1998, the EVMS Biomedical Sciences Research Master's Program is a two-year graduate degree program. The program is multidisciplinary and provides general biomedical sciences training. This program is offered to students with two options: thesis or non-thesis. The curriculum for each option is customized depending on the student's academic history and interest. The thesis option requires one year of academic courses with the second year requiring some advanced coursework and research in a laboratory setting. From the research, the student will be expected to submit and defend a thesis at the completion of their research endeavor. The non-thesis option consists of two years of academic courses and two (2) laboratory rotations. The second year consists of advanced electives which are chosen based on the student's area of interest.
