Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences Degree

The Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences (IMS) BS Degree is designed for students interested in health-related careers. A rigorous science curriculum serves as the foundation of the degree, and students can select one of three interdisciplinary majors that fits their developing career goals. The degree includes health care career exploration through the IMS Experiential Service Learning Seminars series and Senior Capstone course.

Students may pursue individual specialized and pre-professional interests with any of the three major options - Clinical Professions Major, Community Patient Care Major, or Health Management, Policy and Information Major - to help prepare for entry into professional training programs or become part of the healthcare workforce.

Career choices in healthcare include professional schools for medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, or physician assistant, or working in health related nonprofit organizations, governmental and community agencies, medical records, patient education, geriatric care settings, diagnostic laboratories, hospitals, the pharmaceutical industry, medical and wellness facilities, and businesses.


Although housed in the College of Medicine the curriculum is delivered by seven (7) colleges at FSU. In addition to the College of Medicine, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Human Sciences, the College of Communication and Information, the College of Nursing, the College of Social Science and Public Policy, and the College of Social Work are IMS degree program partners.
