Fast-Track to a Graduate Degree for NUHS BS Students

Now bachelor of biomedical science students at National University can shave up to one year off their career education by combining a BS with either a doctor of chiropractic or doctor of naturopathic medicine degree. 

In the university’s new Advanced Scholars Program, the science courses you take in the first year of your DC or ND program will also count toward completion of your bachelor of biomedical science degree. That means you’ll earn both your undergraduate and a first professional degree while saving up to one full year of time and tuition costs!


“We’ve created a way for capable students to enter a graduate level physician program earlier, which can get them on a faster track to a rewarding career in health care,” says Deb Cascio, coordinator of undergraduate recruitment at NUHS. “Specific credit, coursework and GPA requirements are necessary to qualify for the program. We’re here to help advise current BS students on what they’ll need to apply to this new program, as well as those seeking to enter NUHS specifically for this fast-track option.”

The new fast-track option is attractive to many students, as slightly over half of NUHS’ BS students already plan to apply for one of the institution’s graduate degrees. “The Advanced Scholars Program allows them to enter the graduate program one year sooner, and still receive their bachelor of biomedical science degree,” says Deb Cascio.
