MD/MS in Biomedical Engineering


The MD/MS in Biomedical engineering program is available in partnership with UIC’s College of Engineering. By using engineering concepts and methods that apply modern technology to advance health care, this 5-year program will equip graduates with skills required to prepare them for careers as clinical researchers beyond those obtained in their MD program alone. The MS degree is completed during a gap year taken between M3 and M4 years of medical school.
