The goal of the Office of Professional Studies in the Health Sciences is to help accomplished students gain new knowledge in the biological sciences so that they may be better positioned to enter medical or other health professional schools or the job market in related fields. The programs have been assisting students in reaching their professional goals since 1981, with well over 1,000 students entering more than 75 percent of the U.S. allopathic medical schools and nearly all of the U.S. osteopathic schools. ♦
Since 1975, Georgetown University School of Medicine has conducted a special program leading to a Masters of Science degree in Physiology.
