Post-Graduation

Medical TechnicianUpon entering the university, students must be aware that there is nothing to guarantee employment upon graduation. However, the depth of training in the sciences and emphasis on the application of knowledge to health problem solving does help to enable Biomedical Science graduates to secure productive careers in a wide variety of biomedical endeavors encompassing both human and veterinary medicine.

Opportunities fall into three major categories as follows:

Professional School Preparation

Biomedical Science graduates enter schools of human medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, osteopathy, podiatry, and law. All of the preprofessional course requirements for any of these can be completed while registered in the Biomedical Science curriculum.

Allied Health School Preparation

Students and graduates complete the basic course work required by allied health schools and related training programs. Such schools and programs include nursing, medical technology, pharmacy, optometry, physical therapy, dental hygiene, radiation technology, health care administration, medical transcription, occupational therapy, recreation therapy, and dietetics. In the interest of time and efficient use of credit hours, students should have their vocational goals identified no later than the end of the freshman year and preferably on entry into college work.

Graduate Study Preparation

A baccalaureate degree is insufficient for a full and satisfying career for many people. Additional formal education and training is desired and often required. Postgraduate education is built on sound undergraduate study. The Biomedical Science curriculum provides a superior option in preparation for graduate study in a wide range of fields in the life sciences. Graduates can earn master of science (M.S.) and doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in preparation for productive careers in research and teaching, as well as employment in industry and government.
