Hi all,

I'm interested in both KGI's Master of Bioscience program and Thomas Jefferson University's Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (at Jefferson College of Biomedical Sciences). They are both PSM (professional science masters) programs, but KGI's program is more industry oriented and offers curriculum on the business aspect of the biotech industry. Can anyone with experience with one, or both, of the programs please tell me more (such as career outlook, curriculum rigor, culture, etc.)? Also, if I decided to apply for medical school in the future, which would better strengthen my application? Thanks in advance!

Not sure how many people on SDN may have good knowledge of these programs. Moving to non-trad forum.

Out of curiosity what is your motivation for going to one of these programs? Is your GPA lacking or are you just genuinely interested in getting a masters degree? As far as strengthening your application these are not going to do a heck of a lot for you unless you have a subpar GPA. Copious amounts of volunteer hours, research, and leadership will serve your application better. If your plan is to attend medical school pick a program that favors its own graduates when it comes to admitting applicants to their medical school. Temple does that I believe.

I hope to enter the biotech field after completing either of those programs, but I don't want to rule out medical school. I am hoping to matriculate into a program that would also improve my stats/make my application appealing. My G.P.A. is subpar.
