Biomedical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences
|Consider BDTS if you:||Further your studies towards:|
The Biomedical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences program offers a variety of specializations founded on current advances in biomedical, imaging, and clinical sciences such that students are prepared for entry-level health-related employment or for graduate education in the laboratory sciences, related basic sciences, or for professional degrees. The program is committed to producing graduates who are competent, compassionate, who employ critical thinking skills, and who are poised to become leaders in their respective fields. The program is dedicated to generating and disseminating scholarly work and providing a learning environment that advocates professionalism and promotes excellence in healthcare service to the community.
With exception to the Medical Laboratory Science specialization that receives post-graduate clinical training, students have the opportunity to earn a BDTS degree by completing a hospital based clinical internship program at affiliated institutions. Acceptance into the internship programs is competitive and is based on grade point average, personal interview and letters of recommendation. The application process for each of the specializations is unique. Students are advised to read carefully about their chosen specialization.
To prepare for one of the BDTS specializations, a student must have a strong background in sciences including anatomy, physiology, math, physics and computer science. Completion of courses within the BDTS core curriculum may be required for subsequent courses within each specialization. Consult the full BDTS degree requirement checklist for general education requirements that are satisfied by BDTS core curriculum courses.
Biomedical Diagnostic & Therapeutic Sciences major requires a cumulative GPA of 2.80 or higher for all specializations. Students are required to review the catalog for course grade requirements.
