Prepare yourself to be a doctor in our exciting pre-med program and graduate, ready for medical school, with a biomedical science degree

The biomedical science degree is designed to fulfill the admission requirements for medical or veterinary school while providing in-depth training in the biological sciences. Biomedical science students build a strong foundation in mathematics, chemistry and biology and take specialized courses in anatomy, microbiology, genetics, physiology, developmental biology and immunology.

Whether you want to explore the mysteries of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, become a leader in cancer research or gain entry into a prestigious medical, veterinary or dental school, Florida Tech offers a biomedical science degree program that provides a strong biology background. Two biology advising seminars, one of which is specifically designed for pre-med students, help you choose your specialty and outline your course of study.

Gain Practical Experience Through Research

By combining the high-powered research labs usually found only in big universities with the small size of a private college, Florida Tech gives undergraduates in the biomedical science degree program an opportunity to interact with faculty and become involved in important research projects early in their academic career.

The program is hands-on, with small classes and intensive faculty-student interaction. As a student in the biomedical science degree program, you have the opportunity to undertake exciting independent or collaborative (with a peer or professor) research in a topic of your choosing. Students also participate in summer research programs at other universities and corporations. Recent research sites include the Life Science Labs at Kennedy Space Center, Midwest Research Institute, the East Central Florida Memory Disorder Clinic, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Michigan State University.

Build Professional Relationships

Beyond the classroom, biomedical science majors build leadership and professional experience through exciting internships and participation in academic organizations like Tri Beta (biological sciences honor society), the Premed Club, student government and over 100 other student organizations. Each of these experiences gives you a way to interact with other students, professors and industry professionals.

Get Recruited
