The Barry University MBS Program Has a Special Curriculum Designed to Get You Into Medical School

Barry University offers the Master in Biomedical Science degree, which has a very strong track record in helping students achieve their goals of getting into professional school.

This masters program actually has 3 curriculum tracks you can pursue. But today I will only speak about the medical curriculum.

I have to admit the school does an excellent job of getting its students into medical or dental school with over 78% of graduates matriculating to professional school.

Do you know where Barry University is located?

Miami, Florida!

Talk about beaches, warm weather and Florida taxes are low too. A couple of my buddies from undergrad wound up doing residencies in Orthopedic Surgery in Miami and they are definitely living the Miami life. The city is really impressive especially at night.

But I digress, you've come to study and do nothing else...kidding. Always be sure to find the balance between academics and your social/personal life.

Program Focus

If you need to enhance your academic record this is the ideal program to attend. This is the number one school to grant the most Master's of Biomedical Science degrees to underrepresented minorities in the country.
