Welcome to the biomedical sciences program website. The biomedical sciences major at Baptist College of Health Sciences (Baptist College) combines dynamic human health science courses with quality general education. Baptist College students have opportunities to be involved in organizations that develop leadership skills. Opportunities to develop health care research projects enhance the strong science-based curriculum, which prepares students for graduate school. Please feel free to call me at 901-572-2562 or send an e-mail to if you have any questions regarding the biomedical sciences program. We're glad you're here!

A biomedical sciences major will have a unique advantage to complete courses that often are limited to graduate students, such as histology, immunology, epidemiology, and infectious diseases. Providing these courses at the undergraduate level gives our biomedical sciences graduates a competitive edge for admission to graduate and professional programs.

Advantages of the biomedical sciences program:

  • Gives graduates a competitive edge for acceptance to graduate school.
  • Allows individualized curriculum planning based upon your long-term goals.
  • Utilization of newly designed, advanced laboratories.
  • Prepares students for postgraduate education in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, pharmacy, optometry, physician assistant, and other health-related fields.
  • Offers opportunities for research and internships.
  • Three-year track for students who wish to pursue early admission to graduate school.
  • Aquires the skill sets that are necessary in a competitive, ever-changing job market.
  • Graduate/professional placement.
  • Faith-based atmosphere.
