biomedical lab equipmentLaunched in 2009, the UW Master of Science in Biomedical Regulatory Affairs, or BRAMS, was developed to help professionals advance in the regulatory affairs field or enter the field from related areas. The program gives you the management skills to take a medical product — drug, device or biologic — from research and development to market and post-market.

Our graduates have a wealth of career opportunities. They go on to regulatory affairs positions at a variety of successful companies and organizations.  The curriculum also prepares graduates to pursue professional certifications, including those from the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society and the Association of Clinical Research Professionals.

The Master of Science in Biomedical Regulatory Affairs program is offered by the UW School of Pharmacy, a recognized leader in pharmacy education, scholarship and research. In a 2020 survey by U.S. News and World Report, the school ranked 7th among U.S. graduate schools of pharmacy.

A self-sustaining, fee-based program, the Master of Science in Biomedical Regulatory Affairs is administered in partnership with UW Continuum College.
