The Advanced Biomedical Sciences Graduate Certificate is a premium-priced program offered jointly by George Mason University and Georgetown University. This program is aimed at students who typically have all of their prerequisites for medical, dental or other health-related fields, but otherwise may have a modest science background (non-science majors, for example), or modest grades in the sciences as undergraduates, and/or may also need to improve their Medical College Admission Test, Dental Admission Test, or other pre-professional scores. This is a 9-month full-time program that begins each fall semester. All classes are held at the Science and Technology Campus.
Applicants are expected to have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited university, the desire to pursue a career in medicine, dentistry, or other health-related career, completion of all of the prerequisite courses for medical school (biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, math), and overall credentials suitable for acceptance to graduate programs in the College of Science at George Mason University and the Georgetown University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
The graduate certificate may be pursued on a full-time basis.
This certificate program qualifies for Title IV Federal Financial Aid. For more information about program graduation rates, the median debt of students who completed the program, and other important information, please visit our disclosure information page at irr2.gmu.edu
