Intensive Medical Sciences Curriculum

The Intensive Medical Sciences structured curriculum is based on the content, pace and assessments used by our matriculated first-year medical school class. It requires a full-time commitment to academic studies. As a ‘special master's’ program, the Intensive Medical Sciences program affords students the opportunity to take ~70% of the basic science courses equivalent to the first year of our medical school and presented by the same medical school faculty, including:

  • Medical Biochemistry
  • Medical Microanatomy
  • Medical Physiology
  • Medical Nutrition
  • Medical Immunology
  • Medical Neuroanatomy

For more information, please see the catalog.

The curriculum is delivered similarly to our medical school through independent learning modules, in-class conferences, and laboratory components conducted at the Health Science Campus by the medical school faculty.

The Intensive Medical Sciences program begins in August and ends in May. Intensive Medical Sciences graduates who achieve the benchmarks set forth by the College of Medicine MD program matriculate to the medical school the following fall.

The tuition for the Intensive Medical Sciences program is competitively priced to similar one-year Master’s programs.
