Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

The audiology program at the University of Kansas is a top-ranked program for a reason. It was challenging, but rewarding, and provided me with more than enough knowledge and skill to excel in this field. The staff and other students made this program fun and challenging.

Overall, I enjoyed my time at KCU. The academics/curriculum is great for both the Master's program and college of medicine. I received a quality education, was challenged, and do feel the degree will prepare me for medical school once I am accepted to a school. I feel that the admissons/administration wasn't fully there for the students sometimes, especially in the master's program. I think there were promises made that couldn't be fulfilled, and affected a lot of the students. I understand that this school is also a business, but believe a happy medium needs to be found in supporting the students (all students - not just the COM) and maintaining its image.

When I began my search for master programs within biosciences I found programs all across the U.S., large universities, small universities, and everything in between. I am a native of Kansas City, Missouri and I originally restricted myself to look at university out of state. I was aware of the two schools offering programs that aligned, University of Missouri Kansas City and Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. In comparison of the two University of Missouri Kansas City is public and Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences is private. If you are willing to ignore cost just for a second while comparing any schools I think its great idea. When I took a look at the two, I realized that Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences had a much more competitive admission process, there was an approximate cap on their acceptance, Id say about 100-120 students versus University of Missouri Kansas City is known for not having a cap for their master program. It would be more comforting to apply to a school that is less competitive but I feel the more competitive institutions have an extra appeal factor. University of Missouri Kansas City presents programs that are catered more towards students who are pursuing careers in research and intend to continue with their PhD. Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences offers two tracks within their college of biosciences that gives you a one-year track and a two-year track. The two-year track caters to those who have a career as research scientists and allows them to conduct their own original research project. The purpose behind the one-year track is the sole reason why I chose Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences over the University of Missouri Kansas City. The one-year program is geared to prepare you pursue a careers in medicine, dentistry, and more. Some of the courses offered will be biochemistry, cell biology, epidemiology, histology, anatomy, and more. As a person who was looking into master programs to serve as an academic enhancer for my mediocre performance during undergrad. This program has a preparatory component which I love. Any program would have satisfied my needs of upper level science courses and helping raise my gpa. Not every program has a hands on faculty component. At Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences the faculty are truly dedicated to the success of their students and look forward to building those intimate relationships with you. All in all when you are choosing a university the choice ultimately is yours and no one elses. You have to sit back and take a look at what you are needing and wanting out of a program and choose a school that will accommodate exactly that. Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences is that university for me and I am forever grateful for the opportunity earn my Master of Science in Biomedical Science from this institution.
