Five Ways an MSMS Launches Your Medical Career
If your dream is a career as a physician or health care professional, SXU is here to help provide you with a pathway to success. Read below to learn about the five ways the Master of Science in Medical Sciences program at SXU can impact your career!
Each year, over 100,000 college graduates take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). In doing so, they compete for some 25,000 first-year medical school seats. The curriculum for our Master of Science in Medical Sciences program is designed to help graduates of the program improve their MCAT score as well as prepare you for the first year of medical school in just one year. Graduates of our MSMS program have the opportunity to improve their MCAT scores, as well as have their academic record and admission credentials enhanced.
Most students who enter into a master's program in health care with the dream of medical school, find other health care career paths more suitable. If that happens after your first year of medical school, it will be a costly experience without obtaining any academic credentials. However, if that happens after completing a Master of Science in Medical Sciences degree, you will have a highly marketable master's degree with opportunities in viable health care fields such as:
- Pharmacy school and/or pharmaceutical industry
We understand all good students do not get accepted into medical school after graduating with a pre-med degree. We do not want that to discourage those students from following his or her dream of becoming a physician and switching career paths. Our MSMS degree will allow you to further develop and enhance your academic record to prepare you to apply, or reapply, to medical school. Once in medical school, SXU will have provided you a head start and even a leg up so that during your first year, you're studying material with which you're familiar. This familiarity can prove to be a real advantage when you find yourself in a classroom full of medical students. In other words, our MSMS will help level the playing field between you and the competition.
