The department offers three disciplines of study, which are Human Morphology, Physiology, and Neuroscience. Each discipline provides courses to medical, graduate, nursing, nutrition, paramedical and undergraduate students.
The graduate program is broad, leading to a master’s degree (MS) or doctoral degree (PhD) in Biomedical Sciences. Students with a BS degree or its equivalent in mathematics, biology, physics, or chemistry, as well as advanced courses in physiology and other medical science disciplines, are eligible to apply. The department may ask for specific prerequisites in certain disciplines, such as biology and chemistry as deemed necessary.
