Exciting News!

The MSBS program proudly offers a research concentration, which is ideal for student interested in pursuing a career in research, obtaining a PhD, or applying to a professional school such as MD, DO, PA, DMD, among others.

Upon approval of the Dean of the Graduate College of Biomedical Sciences, it may be possible to transfer up to 15 graduate level units from another university, professional school or nationally accredited institution, and thereby complete the program in one year.

Many of our programs have made exceptions to the application process and requirements due to circumstances from the COVID-19 pandemic response at WesternU. Any references to in-person campus visits, events, lab work, or classroom interactions must be read in light of social distancing recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). WesternU has implemented remote teaching and learning across all campuses and only essential personnel are on campus at this time. Please contact us if you have any questions or need further information.
