Master of Science Program in Biomedical Sciences​

The Faculty of Medicine and Medical Sciences has started a new graduate program leading to the degree of Master of Science. This program is aimed to develop the students’ capacity to conduct scientific research and to prepare them for pursuing doctoral qualifications in Biomedical Sciences. 

During the 2-year period of this program, students will be offered graduate courses in the fields of Biochemistry, Immunology, Microbiology, Genetics, Physiology, and Molecular Biology. Students will then select, after the first year, a specific field of study and will be integrated into research projects within a defined domain of interest. To qualify for graduation, a student should write a thesis describing the research project and the results obtained. 

Graduates of the program are introduced to recent sophisticated technologies, and will have acquired the essential skills for conducting independent scientific research. The degree given by the Faculty of Medicine and Medical Sciences opens new venues for those wishing to start work in laboratories or in health-oriented industries, and provides the key to open the door leading to a PhD or MD degree.
