The Learning Environment
Biomedical Sciences is an interdisciplinary major that pulls courses from various departments across the university. Basic science courses are taught by department faculty in large lecture halls. As upper-division students, courses are primarily housed within the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and offer smaller class sizes.
Upper-division students have the opportunity to work in the Behling Human Simulation Center as part of a small seminar providing a hands-on patient care experience.
About Our Facilities
As an interdisciplinary program we share labs and facilities with a variety of programs and departments within the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Throughout these lab environments, students have the opportunity to examine the structure and function of microorganisms through the use of a microscope. Additional laboratory exercises allow for a hands-on experience involving the isolation and characterization of microorganisms. Furthermore students receive detailed instruction in human anatomy, histology, and function through demonstrations on cadaver specimens and major organ systems.
About Our Faculty
Our faculty hold appointments in the various basic science departments in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Numerous faculty hold patents, teaching awards, and appointments on editorial boards associated with professional scientific organizations.
