The Biomedical Engineering MS program offers an MD/MSBME Track that enables qualified students to earn both the MD and the MSBME degrees.

For medical students, the combined MD/MSBME will run as a 5-year program where the students will complete the majority of the MSBME requirements in the third year after matriculation, prior to their clinical experiences. MD students apply and are admitted into the MSBME program in Fall. Upon successful completion of the Structure and Function and FIRE modules in their first year of medical school, students in the MD/MSBME program will receive 9 hours of credit toward the 30 credit hours required for the requirements of the MSBME degree. Medical students will complete the second year of the curriculum and take a year's leave of absence to take most of the MSBME degree requirements.

The Biomedical Engineering MS program requires a minimum of 30 credit hours for students who choose the MD/MSBME track. In this restricted admission MD track, students complete biomedical engineering core courses, concentration courses in Biofluids or Biomechanics, and a thesis.

For MD students in this track, the combined MD/MSBME will be a five-year program, where students complete the majority of the MSBME requirements in the third year (15 credit hours of coursework and 3 credit hours of thesis), receive 9 credit hours of transfer credit from their MD program toward the 30 credit hours required for the MSBME, defend their master's thesis and take the balance of 3 credit hours of thesis in the fifth year, and then graduate with both MD and MSBME degrees.

Total Credit Hours Required: 30 Credit Hours Minimum beyond the Bachelor's Degree
