The EVMS Medical Master's degree is a one-year pre-professional (post-baccalaureate) master's degree program. With the exception of a library research paper and a seminar course, the majority of the courses are medical school courses taught by medical school faculty. The seminar and library research paper are integral parts of the program and provide opportunities to critically review and integrate concepts from current biomedical science and clinical literature. The program provides an opportunity for highly motivated students to improve their academic credentials by demonstrating their academic abilities in a rigorous medical school environment. For this reason it is particularly suitable to help students to make themselves more competitive applicants to medical programs.
