Welcome to the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences at the UF College of Medicine.
The objective of the BMS is to provide a pre-doctoral educational experience that is designed to provide maximum flexibility for the training experimentalists and scholars for a wide range of careers in biomedical science.
We are committed to ensure that every graduate student obtains the best possible educational and research experience and receives support by committed graduate faculty that will enable them to complete their degrees in a reasonable time.
