Biomedical Science

Biomedical Sciences engages pre-health students in medical problems related to forensics, medicine, pharmacology, microbiology, and surgery among other health fields. The first course in the program revolves around solving a medical mystery of a fictitious person whose autopsy reports reveal various health information. Students interact with the story through hands-on labs to discover her manner of death. The second course in the program introduces various body systems to students where they apply information learned to mini-medical mysteries. The third and final course in the program pushes the students’ rigor through the recollection and application of all biomedical information learned thus far to solve a bigger medical mystery about a family having various forms of cancer.
