Anyone who has traveled to or from a place off-the-beaten-path knows that the most stressful part of the trip often centers on making your connections. Completing one leg of a trip is all well and good, but starting the next leg depends on all the pieces falling into place at the right time and the right place.
Attention to the logistics between stages of life can make those transitions between programs less stressful and subject to disruption! At McMurry, the BIMS program is working to smooth out connections for students in pursuit of their career goals in biotech, forensics, and the health professions. We are creating ways to seamlessly connect a junior college program in Biotech with our BIMS degree, and our BIMS program with a variety of graduate and professional programs for our majors and graduates.
Students completing their certification in biotechnology from Cisco College can receive BIMS program credit when they enter McMurry to pursue a BS in Biomedical Science degree. The seamless connections do not stop there. Our BIMS majors can choose to pursue one of our early acceptance/early admission articulations with dental or physical therapy schools. Similar agreements are being developed with schools of pharmacy, chiropractic, and other health professions, and with a graduate program in biotechnology. As these are finalized, expect announcements through this webpage.
Suffice it to say, BIMS wants to insure our students “make their connections” along their journey toward their pursuit of health professions careers. A veritable golf cart honking its way through the crowd at the airport, getting our students from one stage of life to the next.
