What is biomedical diagnostics?
Biomedical diagnostics is inclusive of the many processes used to obtain diagnostic information. This can be used to determine many different aspects of disease, treatments, predisposition for certain health conditions and other outcomes that can help manage one’s health and well-being.
The master’s in biomedical diagnostics program offers specialized training and coursework on key topics in the science and technology of diagnostics, as well as current issues in health economics, policy and regulatory matters.
How is this degree different from a master's in biomedical sciences?
A master’s in biomedical sciences provides you with a survey of the field of biomedical sciences without a significant focus in any particular area. In comparison, a master’s in biomedical diagnostics provides you with expansive breadth and depth in the science, technology, business and application of diagnostics.
In this program, you’ll specialize in biomedical diagnostics and be afforded opportunities to explore many facets of this key area of modern medicine.
