Pursue a master of science in medical sciences through one of these six programs.
The mission of the Biomedical Informatics program is to train a diverse workforce of professionals, researchers, and leaders, with multidisciplinary training in computer science, health and medicine, biostatistics, data science and analytics, engineering, and research methodology. Students can also explore a certificate option.
More than 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day, and according to the Eldercare Workforce Alliance, the United States is ill-prepared to meet current and future workforce needs for its aging adult population. Be a part of the solution to this major problem facing the healthcare landscape with an online graduate certificate or master’s degree in Gerontology.
The UF Medical Physics program is one of the most established in the US, originating in 1961. The program is CAMPEP accredited for graduate degrees for both the M.S. and Ph.D. While the program is academically housed in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering, it is a joint effort of the College of Engineering and the College of Medicine.
The foundation of the Medical Sciences program is a basic understanding of molecular and cell biology and the completion of a high-quality supervised research project. Specialization may be in any of the fields of research being pursued in the College of Medicine such as molecular genetics, gene therapy, bacterial or viral pathogenesis, protein structure, toxicology, mammalian genetics, wound healing, or congenital eye diseases.
The Translational Biotechnology program is interdisciplinary (biosciences and business), research intensive and industry focused. Students will complete a formal internship to earn their M.S. along with a minor in Entrepreneurship.
