About BIMS…

The Biomedical Science program began at McMurry in 2008 through the work of Biology and Chemistry faculty who saw the value in developing a program centered on biology and biochemistry taught from a human health perspective.  The goal was to provide students with a skills-based, experience-laden approach to modern biology central to future growth in biotech, forensic science, health careers, and medical research.

The program features a unique approach that employs delivery of content through the context of research projects.  This “content in context” method excites students, keeps them engaged in their studies, and provides a practical education.   Courses are intimately associated with one another, and their lab-heavy instruction builds solid understanding through application of “what’s new” and “what matters” in a progressive way.  Products obtained in the lab of one course may serve as starting materials for the lab of the next course, showing students that courses are not islands unto themselves but work together to provide the toolkit for full understanding.  Student achievement is evidence-based, with portfolios developed in lecture and lab to demonstrate the growth and abilities of program graduates.  In short, BIMS differs in its approach to education, its expectations for success, and its measure of achievement for its students.

We are confident that the years will show this approach led to extraordinary graduates competitive in any field they wished to pursue.
