Why choose EVMS?

Hands-on education

Accelerated, 16-month curriculum includes theoretical and applied research.

For Clayton Smith, Biotechnology 2014, the experience he gained helped him get hired.

“The Biotechnology program provided me with the knowledge and techniques required to succeed. Now I’m a research scientist at the Center for Learning and Memory, located at the University of Texas at Austin. When I first interviewed for the position, the employer was highly impressed with the broad range of skills I learned at EVMS. If it wasn’t for EVMS, I would not have found my dream job.”

High-level mentorship

Students work closely with faculty both in and out of the classroom.

Collaborate with experienced faculty.

Biotechnology students don’t get lost in a crowd. They have increased access to their professors and receive individual attention because of the program’s high faculty-to-student ratio.

Real-world experience

Make connections through a six-month internship on campus or with an industry partner.

Abigail Cunanan, Biotechnology 2016, says her internships allowed her to turn classroom concepts into actual projects.

“One of the best aspects of the program is the opportunity to do internships. Without those experiences, I doubt I’d be where I am today. Now, I’m cross-trained in both the Microbiology and Molecular Diagnostic Units at the Department of Forensic Sciences Public Health Laboratory in Washington D.C.”

Biotechnology students can intern with a variety of partners, such as LifeNet Health, INDOOR Biotechnologies, Inc., the Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services and more.
