The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine offers an intensive, 10-month Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MiBS) Program designed to fit perfectly in your gap year.
MiBS is a full-time program that packs a core curriculum in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, and physiology, along with several optional courses in three customized tracks – medicine, research, or drug discovery. Our courses are tailored to meet your needs and taught by the same faculty members who teach our medical and graduate students. Additionally, you’ll participate in physician and clinical shadowing or directed research to prepare you for a career in the biomedical sciences.
This program prepares recent undergraduates for medical or graduate school or a biomedical industry career. Our master’s degree is an ideal way to use your gap year to build credentials and experience to propel yourself to an advanced degree. You have access to hands-on faculty advising and mentoring to help you do your best and submit compelling applications. You can begin the program after spring graduation and finish in time to start medical or graduate school the following August.

MiBS will help me stand out among the plethora of applications that doctoral programs receive each year. The courses taken at a medical school level coupled with unique laboratory and clinical experiences are preparing me for the next step in my healthcare career.
