The MBS is a 2-semester (32 credit) program. The discipline-based curriculum is delivered by collaborative effort of basic science and medical faculty in the School of Medicine.

The MBS curriculum is designed around 4 key components that are necessary to strengthen students' candidacies for health and academic careers: (1) academic credentials, (2) communication and interview skills, (3) professional development skills, and (4) critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The student-centered curriculum, active learning experiences, and career advising services enhance students' candidacy for healthcare professional programs, including MD and DO medical schools, PhD programs, schools of dentistry, pharmacy, physician assistant, and other health-related or biomedical research-oriented programs.
