BSI Coursework

Core Courses

  • Principles of Biomedical Sciences (Pre-requisite)- Engaging in activities like dissecting a sheep heart, students will explore concepts of biology and medicine to determine the factors that led to the death of a fictional person.
  • Human Body Systems- Through projects such as determining the identity of a skeleton using both forensic anthropology and DNA analysis, students examine the interactions of human body systems and apply what they need to know to solve real-world cases.
  • Medical Interventions- Students delve into activities like designing a prosthetic arm as they follow the life of a fictitious family and investigate how to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.
  • Biomedical Internship– In the final course of the program, students will have the opportunity to put their knowledge in action through internship experiences with local medical practices and healthcare agencies that we will assist students in establishing.
