This 12-month program prepares students for one of several possible further directions in which advanced training may be pursued. Many M.S. students go on to train in a laboratory discipline pertinent to nutrition or in a public health field in which knowledge of nutrition figures significantly. The Institute of Human Nutrition (IHN) expects to assist students actively in their explorations of avenues of further training.

For students who want to visit the Institute of Human Nutrition, you can find information about their Open Houses here: http://cumc.columbia.edu/ihn/news-and-events/openhouse.

Master of Arts in Medical Sciences

The Master of Arts in Medical Sciences (MAMS) program at Loyola University Chicago is a 9 month program that prepares highly qualified students for matriculation to medical school. The program was founded in 2004 and is one of the original such programs of this nature within the United States. It prepares students who aspire to become compassionate, culturally-competent physicians, and who want to build a compelling medical school application. Loyola University is known for the rigor and quality of their graduate coursework and the long-term advising commitment to their students. Their student-centered, non-competitive, and collaborative environment allows each student to capitalize on their strengths as they build their medical school credentials. Guided by the Jesuit values of “seeking knowledge in the service of humanity; preparing to live in a shared, global community; and building on the desire to always do and become more”, they facilitate access to Chicago-area hospitals and clinics with opportunities to work with underserved populations, sensitizing students to social justice issues, especially in regard to the availability of medical care.

Students who are a good fit for their program have a sound academic background but may have a GPA that suffered as a result of an unexpected emergency or weak time management skills during their freshman year. They especially encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to apply. A minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 and minimum MCAT score of 500 are required for application. All applications will receive a holistic review.

Duke MA in Bioethics & Science Policy

Duke_logo

Should we use technologies that enhance or alter our brains? Is it ever ethical to clone a human being? How should genetic information be used in law enforcement?

The Duke MA in Bioethics & Science Policy invites students to address these questions and many more. The program is the only one in the US that combines bioethics and science policy to truly prepare students to address the societal impact of advances in the biosciences, medicine, and technology. Students explore cutting-edge developments in such fields as genomics and neuroscience and how scientific advances impact law and policy. Each student works with a mentor throughout the program to create an individualized academic experience.

Please join us to learn more about the MA on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at noon (EST), for an online information session. The session will explore the MA curriculum, concentrations, practicum opportunities, admissions, financial aid, and the unique and individualized student experience. You can RSVP for the online session here.

If you love science and are fascinated by how it changes – and is changed by –  society, Duke invites you to apply for the Duke MA in Bioethics & Science Policy.
