School of Graduate Studies admissions
Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine’s School of Graduate Studies is focused on the health careers of the future.
Our Master of Biomedical Sciences (MBS) program serves as the cornerstone of the school, accommodating a broad array of students with varied professional goals. At our Scranton campus, students attend classes full-time and complete the degree in approximately 8 - 10 months. At our Doylestown campus, where we partner with the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute at the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center of Bucks County, students earn their degrees in as few as 16 months through a flexible-format program, attending evening classes and one Saturday class per month.
Additional degrees in areas including informatics, genomics and population health are currently under development. Our new graduate programs will be grounded in the most pressing healthcare challenges in our communities and they will serve not only as an arena for education, but also a foundation of workforce development. The School of Graduate Studies will make the community its classrooms. Students will be required to consider community health needs and to engage with community partners when pursuing graduate studies in biomedical sciences, population health or any number of other degree programs that will be built around the health system’s intellectual and technological prowess.
