Graduate Certificate in Molecular & Biomedical Sciences
The Graduate Certificate in Molecular and Biomedical Sciences reinforces basic science concepts through examples of human disease and experimental data and is fundamental for a better understanding of clinical sciences. The curriculum includes eight graduate-level courses consisting of six courses in biomedical sciences and two professional skills courses. Classes are taught by College of Medicine faculty and cover similar material seen in the first year of medical school.

Although [the program] was a difficult experience, it paved the journey to my main goal at the time: acceptance into medical school. I ended up gaining so much more along the way, and I am so thankful for that.
Amanda Baroutjian, HWCOM MD Class of 2022, Emergency Medicine Resident at Stony Brook University Hospital
The graduate certificate program is the reason I was able to get into medical school. The “golden ticket” opportunity given to students is possible to achieve, and I’m eternally grateful for that opportunity. I learned successful habits that would serve me well for the rigorous programs of medical school.
Hannah Bearham, HWCOM MD Class of 2024
