  3. 3. 3 Dear Prospective Student, Do you want to be a medical doctor? A surgeon? A physician assistant? A dentist? A phar- macist? A scientist? Or do you want to advance your career in nursing? The Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences is right for you! Our Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences provides an integrated learning, research opportunities, community health engagement, and leadership training that prepares grad- uates for professional or advanced degrees in health care or biomedicine.  The lower division core curriculum provides a strong foundation in basic sciences, in ad- dition to the unique CDU core themes to prepare our graduates to disseminate the CDU mission. The CDU advantage includes core courses on cultural diversity education, global comparative health disparities, underserved community engagement, and sociopolitical dynamic of health embedded in the Biomedical Sciences curriculum. The upper division curriculum is tailored to individual career goals, such as pre-medicine, pre-nursing, pre-physician assistant, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy and pre-dentistry. In addition, we offer pre-professional admission exam preparation under our Integrative Biomedical Sciences Courses. Our doctoral prepared faculty is committed to student success. Tutoring and skills development classes are offered to ensure that your time at CDU will be productive and successful. We offer unique research opportunities for undergraduate students, and we look forward to sharing the excitement of our re- search interests with you. Working directly with a research mentor, students are afforded opportunities to work on projects that are at the forefront of scientific advances in areas such as cancer, obesity, cardio-metabolic disorders, HIV and neurobiology, amongst others. Community engagement research is also a key component of the undergraduate program. If you are passionate and committed to become a health professions leader, I invite you to come and visit our campus. As a student in the Biomedical Sciences program, you will be immersed in an extremely cooperative community that seeks to provide excellence in education, research, leadership and service to CDU’s students and underserved communities. Sincerely, Monica Ferrini, M.S., Ph.D. Associate Professor Chair, Department of Health and Life Sciences College of Science & Health Department of Health & Life Sciences College of Science & Health Charles R.

  4. 4. 4 Students are immersed in a struc- tured comprehensive curricula designed for preparation for health professional careers. This is achieved by offering courses, laboratory work and research opportunities that de- velop fundamental problem-solving criteria, critical thinking, writing, and communication skills.  Our students graduate with the scientific knowledge and intellectual abilities to pursue careers or pursue post graduate education in the health professions. The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Biomedical Sciences prepares students for entry into graduate and professional programs in medicine, osteopathic, podiatry, optometry, physical therapy, physician assistant, pharmacy or den- tistry. In addition, the BS program prepares students for masters and doctor- al programs, scientific research, and employment in biomedical laboratories and/or biotech companies. The program offers a multidisciplinary study of health and diseases, and particularly the biological and molecular sciences that constitute the foundation of modern medicine.

  5. 5. 5 Admissions The Department of Health and Life Sciences conducts a comprehensive review of all applications for undergraduate admission, involving an academic review and evaluation of personal achieve- ments. The Department of Health and Life Sciences accepts applications for the Biomedical Sciences undergraduate program from freshman and transfer students. Program Admissions Requirements • Completion of the Application for Undergraduate Studies. • High School diploma • Official transcript from all post secondary school attended • Minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) • National test scores (either SAT or ACT) are required • For freshman students: A year of high school laboratory sciences in biology, or chemistry, or physics. • For transfer students: Completion of Introductory Chemistry and Introductory Biology or equivalent After matriculation, the Department will conduct Math and English placement exams to all incoming students. Application filing periods The Biomedical Sciences undergraduate program starts every year in the Fall and Spring semesters. The date be- low is a recommended deadline; however, the program offers rolling admissions and applications are considered until the enrollment capacity has been reached. Deadline: March 1 For more information, contact the Office of Admissions at admissionsinfo@cdrewu.edu or at (323) 563-4839.  Apply at www.cdrewu.edu/apply Fees, Tuition, and Estimated Student Budget  We are committed to helping students finance their education; the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships works closely with all students who need financial assistance. A financial aid award generally consists of a combination of scholarships and grant money from CDU and other sources, low-interest loans, and a work-study job during the academic year. We recommend that you take the initiative to research the wide range of scholarship opportuni- ties sponsored by outside organizations. Every year thousands of dollars go un-awarded because students are not aware of these resources. For more information about financing your education, contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships at finaid@cdrewu.edu or  (323) 563-4838. 
  6. 6. 6 Requirements for the Major (120 units) The lower division core curriculum provides a strong foundation in basic sciences, in addition to the unique CDU core themes to prepare our grad- uates to disseminate the CDU mission. The CDU advantage includes core courses on cultural diversity education, global comparative health disparities, underserved community engagement, and sociopolitical dynamic of health embedded in the Biomedical Sciences curriculum. The upper division curric- ulum is tailored to individual career goals, such as pre-medicine, pre-nursing, pre-physician assistant, pre-pharmacy pre-physical therapy and pre-dentistry. In addition, pre-professional admission exam preparation is offered through Integrative Biomedical Sciences courses. Of the 120 units required for the Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences, the major requires 67 units, plus an additional 53 units of general education and other University requirements. During the first year, students will have to take summer semester courses in order to complete the required units. Successful completion of the major requires a minimum C (2.0) overall grade point average in all courses required for the major. At least 15 units of upper division coursework that fulfills major requirements must be taken in resi- dence (not to include courses graded CR/NC).
