Degrees Offered: MS
The Johns Hopkins University Post-Baccalaureate Health Science Intensive Program is a unique concentration in the MS in Biotechnology program. In one year, as a full-time student, students are immersed in an innovative curriculum specifically created to help students who want to build a more competitive medical school application.
This curriculum includes the traditional advanced science academic coursework necessary to bolster academic records for a successful medical school application, along with the practical skills necessary to use them in the field, as well as the advice and mentoring necessary to be successful.
This approach is designed to help prepare students simultaneously for application to medical school and success in medical school while concurrently earning a Master of Science in Biotechnology degree from Johns Hopkins University.
There are many benefits to this curriculum. Along with attending a premier research university known for its excellence in the sciences, students take courses on a number of unique and interesting scientific topics that will strengthen and broaden their scientific knowledge. To complement the science courses, students complete three non-science courses that focus on skill building in communication, leadership-teamwork, and understanding the social and psychological determinants of health. Through group seminars and one-to-one advising, students gain a thorough understanding of the medical school application philosophy and strategy, and how to best highlight strengths.
