Bachelor of Science (BS) in Medical Sciences

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.

Please note: The curriculum as outlined through the links on this page has recently been slightly changed for new/incoming students entering the program beginning Fall Semester 2023.  These few changes are shown in the "Medical Sciences Student Handbook May 2023" version available to these students in the Bearcat Bound Orientation Canvas course for students enrolling in the program beginning Fall 2023.  This page and the curriculum links will be updated over the summer of 2023 to also reflect these recent minor curriculum changes.  If any questions, please contact the Director of Student Success, Dr. Shawn Adkins, at.


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.
