Georgetown University in partnership with George Mason University offers a postbaccalaureate, graduate-level Advanced Biomedical Sciences Certificate program for individuals interested in careers in the health professions. Courses are taught by Georgetown University and George Mason University professors.

This is a full-time, 9-month, 20-credit graduate certificate program which provides excellent advanced science preparation for health professions including medical, dental and other healthcare-related advanced studies. The program includes preparation for professional examinations (such as MCAT, DAT, or GRE), and outstanding advising and support towards your goals. The graduate certificate program follows a traditional semester system. Courses are taken concurrently and the program begins in late August.  There is a winter break that runs from mid-December through mid-January. The program generally is completed by mid-May.

Students who successfully complete the Advanced Biomedical Sciences certificate program are eligible to continue their coursework at Georgetown University and complete a traditional Master’s in Physiology. For eligible students who choose to complete an M.S. degree at Georgetown University during the summer, their summer studies generally begin in the second week of June.
