Biomedical Communications (BMC) offers a curriculum that bridges the disciplines of art, science, medicine and communication. Students create and evaluate original visual materials for health promotion, medical education, knowledge transfer, and as part of the process of scientific discovery. The graduate program combines theoretical and applied approaches to the profession of medical and scientific illustration.
The objectives of the M.Sc.BMC program are to: emphasize a content- rather than media-driven curriculum that assures a solid foundation in basic and clinical sciences; facilitate the development of new visual communication tools for the purpose of educating medical, allied health, and non-medical audiences; stimulate intellectual curiosity and self-directed learning; advance knowledge transfer in the biomedical sciences through the development of the analytical skills essential to evaluating existing scholarly works, and formulating research questions that advance knowledge in the discipline.
