Parking Update: To ease parking congestion on EFSC's Melbourne Campus, students, faculty and staff may park in the large King Center lot. Additional parking is also available at the Tennis Complex accessed from Post Road near Sherwood Elementary. Please be sure your parking permit is on your vehicle and remember that parking is only allowed in marked spaces, and is not allowed on the grass. Thank you for your patience and courtesy during this busy period.

Combining science and management

The Biomedical Sciences Bachelor of Applied Science specialization builds upon a student's existing professional knowledge to enhance skills in communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and research and leadership theories. Graduates can expect to qualify for positions such as clinical lab technologist, molecular biologist, research biologist, pharmaceutical research and sales, health economics promotion and at zoological facilities.

The advanced science courses in biology, biochemistry and cell biology teach students how the body reacts to disease and how to both maintain and promote health in humans and animals.

A dual graduate of the BAS Biomedical Sciences and A.S. Medical Laboratory Technology programs is eligible to sit for the MLSASCP exam qualifying for higher paying jobs and filling the need for support in the medical technology field. Students also have an option to pursue additional education in a graduate program, such as the partnership between EFSC and the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. Lake Erie offers an Early Acceptance Program for EFSC Biomedical Science students interested in graduate studies at  their College of Medicine, School of Pharmacy or School of Dental Medicine.

The Biomedical Sciences admissions process follows the general bachelor's degree enrollment steps. The Applied Health Sciences curriculum includes information on this track, including the course sequence.

The BAS degree programs are designed with the working student in mind so classes are offered in flexible formats to include day, evening, online and hybrid. The degree is also Financial Aid eligible. Students are admitted to the Biomedical Sciences program in the January and August terms only.

Designed for students holding an A.S. degree, an A.A. degree from a regionally accredited institution is also acceptable for admission into this degree. An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.
