  • Graduate Program

    The Department of Biomedical Materials Science at the University of Mississippi Medical Center offers a graduate program at the MS and PhD levels. The education of the student focuses on the fundamental understanding of materials science and the biological principles that govern the response of biomedical materials and devices when implanted in the body. Students are educated through didactic instruction, laboratories, and involvement in active research projects. Graduates of this program will have the necessary tools for careers in academic teaching and research, as well as the skills needed by industry.

    The entering student should have an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution of higher learning in an area of engineering, physics, chemistry or biology. However, students from other disciplines with appropriate preparation will be considered. It is expected that, since students will be recruited from a range of backgrounds, some will be stronger in the biological sciences while others will have greater strengths in the physical sciences and engineering disciplines. Candidates must show a level of written and oral proficiency in English. 

    Costs and financial assistance

    The costs for attendance are described in the Graduate Bulletin. Assistantships are available for qualified students through the department.
