The Department of Biomedical Sciences is dedicated to providing excellent undergraduate preparation for those students interested in pursuing careers in medicine, dentistry, basic medical research, biomedical education or other health professions. The curriculum is designed to provide students a strong general education in the humanities, arts, social sciences, mathematics, and sciences, followed by in-depth study in the basic medical sciences. The program offers an optional Honors Research Thesis (BMD 499) to qualified students consisting of a first-hand research laboratory apprenticeship in biomedical research under the mentorship of a faculty scientist. Students interested in the Honors Research Thesis option should contact Robin Mockett for information. The Biomedical Sciences curriculum as a whole is aimed at establishing a conceptual framework from which the student can pursue post baccalaureate educational experiences in the biomedical sciences, particularly medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, or Ph.D. study in Basic Medical Sciences, as well as in a variety of health and science related fields. In addition, the Department of Biomedical Sciences offers basic medical science course work that serves as a background for students wishing to pursue professional component programs in the Pat Capps Covey College of Allied Health Professions.
