The master

The master's degree in Biomedicine represents one of the University of Barcelona's key strategic contributions to the field, both in terms of its academic content and on the strength of the underlying research infrastructure. The programme covers multidisciplinary aspects of biomedicine and applied research, and graduates will have excellent future prospects in life sciences. The degree also provides the necessary training for entry into postgraduate studies relating to diverse areas of biomedicine. The quality of the master's degree is guaranteed by the excellent scientific output indicators achieved by the teaching staff and researchers involved in the teaching of the programme. This is a multidisciplinary course coordinated by various departments in the faculties of Medicine and Health Sciences, Biology and Pharmacy and Food Sciences.
The new curriculum for the master's in Biomedicine, which was introduced for the academic year 2013-2014, retains the multidisciplinary nature of the previous curriculum, but differs in three respects:
  • Increased content in molecular oncology and endocrine and metabolic diseases, which are areas of biomedicine not covered by other master's courses offered by the University of Barcelona.

  • A more clearly defined approach in the component of applied biomedical research.

  • Adaptation to the content of the new degree courses in biomedical sciences.
