Masters of Science in Biomedical Imaging: Admitting for Fall 2016!

Are you interested in mastering biomedical imaging and research methods to enhance your research designs and broaden your investigative projects? If yes, than UCSF’s Masters of Science in Biomedical Imaging (MSBI) program might be the right fit for you! The enrollment process to the program for Fall 2016 begins on November 16, 2015, when applications will start to be accepted. The deadline for Fall 2016 applications in February 29, 2016.

The MSBI program is aimed at students with Bachelor’s degrees, advanced predoctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, residents, researchers and faculty. The program can be completed in one year of full-time study or in two years on a part-time schedule.

Of the MSBI, Lindsay Connor, MSBI Alumni, states, “The title of this program does not even begin to describe the diversity of knowledge presented to the students in a short year by professors who both care on a personal level and are at the top of their respective fields.”

Course work includes instruction in core theory, drawn from imaging physics,engineering and mathematics and linked to physiology and disease processes, providing a foundation in interdisciplinary scholarship. In addition to introducing the fundamentals underlying image formation, hands-on laboratory courses with experiments relevant for characterizing pathologies, monitoring response to therapy and assessing the underlying mechanisms and etiologies, will be offered. Electives allow students to customize the program to their interests, including the option to perform independent research studies.
