Graduate Programs

The Master of Science in Medical Sciences Program is part of the Gateways Program at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. This specialized medical masters program provides academically promising, motivated students new pathways to medical school and careers in other health sciences fields.

The Medical Sciences program offers a rigorous multifaceted curriculum, small class size and robust mentoring system, which allows students to receive individualized attention as they pursue their academic and career goals.

This program features a robust basic science curriculum, which includes all four of the basic science courses and two of the three organ system courses undertaken by first-year medical students at Warren Alpert Medical School. In addition, students will complete a unique seminar course series covering pressing issues in today's health care system, such as social determinants of disease, population health, interdisciplinary teamwork, quality improvement, and health care communication. Integrated into this course series is a longitudinal service learning experience at a community healthcare site and an associated community-based capstone project. Through this course of study, students will improve their credentials for entry to medical school and other healthcare fields, as well as gain real-world experience in healthcare.
