The Department of Biomedical Sciences is committed to teaching a broad, medically oriented curriculum to a large number of motivated, enthusiastic undergraduate students every year. The Department also makes significant contributions to a variety of heath professional programs, including instructing students in the Marquette University School of Dentistry, Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, Master’s Program in Physician Assistant Studies, and the new Doctor of Occupational Therapy program.
