Our Program presumes that students enter with a working knowledge of basic medical terminology and major concepts of health and illness. People with degrees in medicine, nursing, or the allied health professions, or simultaneously in training, ordinarily meet this requirement. The Admissions Committee will carefully review the applications from those without formal training but with work experience in the health professions and/or suitable undergraduate studies.
Applicants must possess a Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited college or university. While there are no specific prerequisites, an applicant’s transcript will be reviewed for demonstration of satisfactory performance in quantitative and qualitative methods and in social and Biomedical sciences. Students are selected on the basis of demonstrated past academic achievement.
