We offer a post-baccalaureate graduate level Advanced Biomedical Sciences Certificate program for individuals interested in careers in the health professions. Courses are taught by Georgetown and George Mason professors.

This is a full-time 9-month, 20 credit graduate level 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 ABS certificate program are eligible to continue their coursework at Georgetown University and complete a traditional Masters in Physiology. For eligible students who choose to complete an MS at Georgetown University during the summer, their summer studies generally begin in the second week of June.
