Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program



Temple's Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program provides students with the education, training, and skills that today's employers in academia, government and industry demand. Our graduates find positions in academia and in a wide array of health science-related industries and corporations throughout the United States and abroad.


With a curriculum featuring an interdisciplinary approach to education and research training, students learn how to perform as independent scientific investigators, exploring new pathways for learning and discovery.


Both the MS with thesis and PhD programs are scholarly endeavors requiring original research. The programs challenge students to think logically and creatively and to express themselves independently.


Students benefit from Temple's high faculty-to-student ratio. They receive outstanding mentoring from their advisors and faculty—all premier researchers with national and international reputations. Students are also given ample opportunity to explore options for independent study and research.
