This eight-month program is designed to enable local residents to complete a Certificate in Biomedical Sciences, which prepares them for entry-level jobs at local biotechnology companies, universities, research institutions, clinical laboratories and hospitals.

Working in collaboration with a number of state and local agencies, the Cambridge Biomedical Careers Program provides Cambridge residents with an academic foundation in the biomedical sciences. The program includes a comprehensive laboratory skills course, as well as career counseling and job placement assistance. Through a partnership with Bunker Hill Community College, the program prepares participants for a variety of jobs in the Cambridge biomedical community, including laboratory technician/assistant, quality control technician, biotechnology manufacturing assistant, and animal care technician.
