MS in Medical Sciences

The Master of Science in Medical Sciences is a one-year program specifically designed to provide students with a structured opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills that will prepare them for the challenges of applying to and succeeding in medical, dental, and other professional schools. The program contains didactic coursework at the graduate professional level, professional skills development sessions, standardized test preparation, and clinical exposures to form a complementary skill set to those that have been acquired at the undergraduate level. Graduates of this program will also be academically prepared to enter industrial or academic technical positions requiring a biomedical sciences background.

We expect this program to enhance students’ success at professional school acceptance, but please note that successful completion of this program is in no way a guarantee of an interview or acceptance into professional school at MUSC or anywhere else.
