About Biomedical Sciences

The Biomedical Sciences major is an interdisciplinary program designed for students specifically wishing to pursue a career in the health sciences.  The curriculum provides students with the foundation required for admission to and success in a variety of graduate programs (physiology, neuroscience, immunology, human genetics, etc.) or professional schools (medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, nursing, etc.).  After completing a common core of classes, students specialize in a specific area of interest through upper-level courses in biology and/or chemistry. 


Over the past five years, 100% of qualified students (and over 90% of all applicants to medical school) have been admitted to a wide range of excellent programs.


The Biomedical Sciences major was created for the fall of 2018 to better serve the large number of students interested in pursuing pre-health fields at Georgetown College!


As an interdisciplinary program, Biomedical Sciences ensures that students are fully prepared for any medical school curriculum by combining courses from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Math.

Potential Careers

“I owe much of my own success to the faculty’s personal investment in their students. Thanks to them, GC is known by medical residencies in the region as a powerhouse that produces numerous future physicians each year. I was proud to boast about my alma mater when interviewing for my residency in Pediatrics!”
