Expanding Miami's Health Care Programs

Expanding Miami's Health Care Programs

Miami will create or enhance multiple health-related programs. We will study the feasibility of programs that include an expanded Bachelor of Science in Nursing program and several new programs: an M.S. in Physician Assistant Studies (MSPAS), an M.S. in Nursing (MSN) with an online core curriculum and three professional tracks, an online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), a post-baccalaureate pre-medical certificate, and an M.S. in Biomedical Sciences (MBS).

These programs will build on Miami's longstanding reputation in preparing students for medical school and outstanding careers in health professions. These programs will help recruit Miami students, prepare those students for workforce leadership, and strengthen our connection to our communities.
