Master of Science in the Field of Anatomical and Translational Sciences
The master of science in the field of anatomical and translational sciences (M-ATS) is a non-thesis master's program designed to give students advanced, comprehensive knowledge in basic medical sciences. M-ATS is a 38-credit, interdisciplinary program taken over two years. M-ATS is an extension of the graduate certificate in anatomical and translational sciences (GCATS), which can serve as year 1 of the M-ATS program. Year 2 of the M-ATS curriculum integrates biomedical knowledge related to regenerative biology, systems physiology, pharmacology, pharmacogenomics, genomic medicine, and bioinformatics. The M-ATS program provides students with a solid background in personalized medicine and the methodological aspects of translational research and clinical investigations as well as opportunities to carry out research in translational medicine. As a result, graduates maximize their academic and career opportunities by enhancing competitiveness of applications to medical schools, physician assistant programs, and Ph.D. programs in biomedical sciences.
Specific admission requirements are shown on the Graduate Program Finder.
