Exciting News!

The Graduate College of Biomedical Sciences at Western University of Health Sciences is developing a PhD in Translational Biomedical Sciences. We are currently collecting prospective student information for those who may be interested. This PhD program is intended for students who are interested in learning how to translate a basic scientific discovery into a clinical application, such as a new research tool, a drug, a device, or a diagnostic tool. If you would like to be added to our interest list, please complete our online Information Request Form.


Emphasizing interdisciplinary study, WesternU’s two-year Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MSBS) program will provide you the opportunity to fully customize and design a unique curriculum across many different biomedical disciplines. You will also have an opportunity to obtain internships in Southern California companies and organizations as well as the opportunity to study abroad in France. This cutting edge program prepares you for numerous exciting and rewarding careers in Animal Sciences, Health and Nutrition, Translational Medicine, Regulatory Science, Clinical Science, Biomedical Intellectual Property and Healthcare Bioinformatics.

This program is a flexible biomedical health science graduate program designed to educate post-graduate students in the principles and experimental methodologies of biomedical sciences, as they relate to human and animal health and disease. Graduates will develop the requisite critical thinking skills and knowledge to become leaders in biomedical research, academia, or biomedical companies.

Graduate students must complete a minimum of 40 credit hours, including 20 credit hours of the 7 core courses, 8-12 credit hours from technical skill courses, and 8-12 credit hours from content elective courses.
