The goals of the MBB undergraduate major is to prepare students for graduate studies in biomedical research; entry into professional schools in medicine or other health professions; or employment in industries (e.g., biotechnology, pharmaceuticals) in which scientific skills and reasoning are in demand. The same learning goals are also used for non-major students taking MBB courses.
- Students should demonstrate an understanding of the knowledge that is needed to begin biomedical research and that is required for post-graduate exams and studies.
- Students should demonstrate the ability to find and evaluate information about specific biological systems or problems.
- Students should demonstrate the ability to design experiments and critically analyze data.
- Students demonstrate the ability to communicate their research and findings orally through seminar and poster presentations and through written research papers.
