Biomedical Science Programs
Our research-intensive PhD and master's programs prepare tomorrow's leaders in scientific investigation. Through innovative and collaborative curriculums, students receive hands-on training in basic, clinical and translational research.
Interdisciplinary & Career-Oriented Programs
Interdisciplinary and career-oriented Master of Science and certificate programs are offered to students who wish to pursue or advance in a career in the health sciences. These programs emphasize the real-world application of science to careers in forensics, drug discovery, histotechnology, infectious disease, biomedicine, immunology and more.
Pre-medical & Pre-health Programs
Our pre-medical and pre-health programs prepare students for entry into medical, dental, optometry, chiropractic, podiatric and veterinary medical schools. We have helped thousands of students gain entry to these professional schools, as well as other advanced degree programs.

"The Interdisciplinary Health Sciences program has helped me so much and not only improved my scientific knowledge but exposed me to the field of medicine as a whole. There are so many people willing to help you succeed here, that it’s a disadvantage if you do not use them, whether it be Dr. Anita Gaurnier-Hausser and Matt Sanuck, or the professors of specific classes."
"I liked that Drexel allows you to branch out and find what you like. For example, I was able to take a medical genetics course that was being offered through the Master of Laboratory Animal Science (MLAS) program."

Meet Our Faculty - Joris Beld, PhD
"My lab is interested in natural products. In other words, we're interested in molecules that we get from nature. If you go to a hospital and you look at the list of drugs they prescribe to patients, you'll find that roughly 75 percent of those are derived from natural products. Those drugs are not something that chemists have invented. They're made from molecules that we've borrowed from nature."
