About the Biomedical Sciences Research Master's Program

The EVMS Biomedical Sciences Research Master’s Program is multidisciplinary and provides general biomedical sciences training. This program is offered to students with two options: Thesis or Non-thesis. Both options consist of 1.5 years of core academic courses and 2-3 laboratory rotations, as well as advanced electives. Students in both options complete laboratory research projects in a faculty member's lab.                     

Thesis Option: Students choosing the thesis option complete a research project that is developed into a written thesis, and defended in an oral presentation.

Non-thesis Option: Students in the non-thesis option prepare a written report of their research followed by an oral presentation.
