The MS in Biological Sciences at NSU is a great bridge program for any medical or research profession. I first heard about the program from one of my favorite professors at NSU, Dr. Raja. Our cohort was the first group to graduate from the program and we were all very close. The 1-year experience is accelerated in pace, but it prepares you for the flood of information you will receive in the first year of medical school. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at FIU, and we take first-year courses alongside medical students. The program is structured in a way to touch upon all the different topics such as immunology, anatomy, and biochemistry. All topics you will revisit in the future again. The professors at NSU not only help in their courses but also offer career advice and mentorship. It was because of their guidance I found an opportunity to work in the NSU CCR laboratories under NIH funding. This is how I found my passion for research. Thank you, NSU! Fins up!
