About Our Master’s Programs

Our innovative training programs are designed to prepare students for a career in the broad field of biomedical sciences. Keck students gain a deep understanding of the scientific and clinical underpinnings of their specialization and how to leverage them in large-scale to make new and important discoveries. Programs take advantage of our broad spectrum of expertise, ranging from basic sciences to clinical medicine and public health, to emphasize translational research interdisciplinary training. In addition to the required core curriculum, students also take elective courses on a variety of topics. Graduate students are active members of the vibrant research community at USC. In parallel to the coursework, students participate in hands-on laboratory research, where they join one of the many research groups on the Health Sciences Campus or at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and participate in ongoing, cutting-edge biomedical research with leading medical faculty. The Keck School of Medicine faculty mentor students, lead research investigations and oversee patient care within the school’s five partner hospitals.
