Program Description:

Radboud University aims to educate the best biomedical scientists with not just a thorough understanding of the molecular, individual and population aspects of human health and disease, but also with unique areas of expertise. To do this we have constructed a Master’s programme in Biomedical Sciences that gives students the opportunity to construct their own programme based on personal academic and professional interests. Students choose one of three specialisations belonging to one of the research institutes and combine that with one of three career profiles. The research institute will be your learning environment, and a mentor of the institute will help you design your programme.

The programme provides students with a solid base in research methodology, statistics and biostatistics, laboratory research and communication skills. Leading scientists in fields ranging from metabolism, membrane transport, neuromuscular disease and inflammation to screening efficacy, clinical interventions and evidence-based medicine are involved in the teaching programme as lecturers and tutors.

A majority of our graduates become researchers in government departments, research organisations, universities and medical or pharmaceutical companies. Graduates also opt for careers as communication advisors or scientific consultant/advisor with a background in biomedical science, an expertise that is much in demand.
