  • MA=students with a postbaccalaureate degree from the Master of Arts biomedical science program

  • BA/BS=students with a four-year baccalaureate degree only

  • Note: Because the numbers of MA students were small in the 2013–15 years, those years were combined for both the MA and BA/BS students.
