Student in Lab working on experiment

Life Sciences, B.S. / Osteopathic Medicine, D.O.

Our combined degree program awards a Bachelor of Science in Life Sciences and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in seven years. During the pre-professional phase, you’ll begin where leading physicians, professors, and other health care practitioners all initiate their careers—by studying how organisms function, survive, adapt, and evolve. Our curriculum provides the foundation in the core sciences of biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, microbiology, cell and molecular biology, biomedical research, and other disciplines.

Our professors actively conduct research in these fields to provide you with additional training opportunities. Additionally, while enrolled in the life sciences portion of the program, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with osteopathic medicine and the medical faculty through symposia and courses sponsored by NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine.

After completing the first three years of the pre-professional phase, you may apply for acceptance into the four-year clinical education program for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.
