The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine launched the Medical Sciences major in fall 2015 and celebrated its first graduating class in spring 2018. Learn more about our students' achievements


Medical Sciences is an innovative major within the College of Medicine that provides students with integrated academic, experiential, and mentored opportunities to prepare them for advanced training in medicine and the biomedical sciences. In addition to taking courses that are required for the major, students choose from a broad range of elective courses. In consultation with an academic advisor, each student creates an Individual Development Plan (IDP) that best meets their career objectives.

  • During their first two years, students in the program participate in Learning Communities which develop a sense of camaraderie while student take the majority of their classes on west campus. 
  • For their capstone experience in the senior year, students select either the Health & Community: Service-Learning track or the Biomedical Research track.
  • Learn more about the role of experiential learning in the curriculum including research, service learning, and international opportunities.


A general 4-year academic plan can be found here. Please note that depending on advanced credit, career plans, and interests, individual students' sequences and electives will vary.
