A unique program with a record of success

More than 61% of MA in Biomedicine students that apply to medical school are accepted, compared to the national average of 49%. Acceptance rates for dental, physician assistant, veterinary medicine, and physical therapy schools are similar. Professors who are mentors and experts in their fields make a big difference.

Our faith-based approach and transdisciplinary studies make EMU’s medicine program unique. We use natural science courses as our core curriculum, and students immerse themselves in the physical, social, psychological and spiritual dimensions of biomedicine.

Integrative seminars and practicums add real-world, practical experience to this broad foundation, and cross-discipline requirements in social science and theological ethics accent the intersection of faith and science. A cross-cultural course practicum challenges students to apply their biomedical learning in different cultural settings.

And 1:1 attention and guidance from faculty who are experts in their field help you excel and become prepared and confident members of the biomedical field.
