Postgraduation career

Based on the Master of Biomedical Sciences 2019 graduating class consisting of 33 students the graph reflects their current status after a couple weeks post-graduation. Currently, 13/33 (~39.4%) of our MBS graduates have been accepted into an MD/Professional School next year. This includes one MBS graduate who is on a wait list for an MD school. MBS graduates who have gained healthcare employment include 6/33 (18.2%) of the class. Meanwhile, we have 14/33 (42.4%) of MBS graduates who will be focusing on taking the MCAT this summer and/or working as a medical scribe, clinical researcher, or shadowing a physician, and then planning to apply to MD/DO schools. These results may change as our MBS graduates progress into their goals, time, and when data is updated.
