The Biomedicine option provides a strong foundation in the biomedical sciences via an integrated curriculum of science and mathematics, including all prerequisite coursework to prepare for the medical school admissions test and prerequisite requirements for doctoral programs in biomedicine.
Student skills in research design and methodology are refined through the development of critical analytical skill-building experiences. Applied mathematics and computational analysis are coupled with science content to study complex systems and behaviors.
Following completion of the NJCSTM freshmen/sophomore core curriculum, students continue onto advanced coursework in microbiology, anatomy and physiology, immunology, biochemistry and neurobiology and take electives in human rights, sustainability science or history of medicine. Opportunities for team research projects, service-learning and community outreach are available.
Second language proficiency is a graduation requirement.
