For many students, a master’s degree is a marker of success. The degree proclaims them as an expert in the field of study they have chosen and can greatly enhance their career prospects. In addition, students who want doctoral degrees frequently must first get master’s degrees.
What is a Master in Biomedical Science? Biomedical science analyzes biology as it relates to medicine in order to cure or treat diseases. This degree is intended to prepare students who seek a career in a health profession or a related field that calls for graduate-level biomedical sciences education. The program includes master’s-level coursework and working with patients to learn how to best serve them. In addition, students usually take electives such as human anatomy, animal anatomy or neurobiology.
Students aspire toward high-level biomedical science degrees for many reasons. They may want to get involved in the exciting and rewarding career of curing diseases, or they might enjoy the tremendous versatility and potential high salaries of the field.
Classes in biomedical science are in demand all over the world. As a result, the price tag of such programs varies, depending on the college/university and the program structure. In general, such programs run for one year. It’s critical for all students thinking about enrolling in a program to research the school and program to ensure the best fit.
Individuals who earn biomedical science degrees work in a wide variety of fields. For example, they are employed in labs, in the biotech industry and even in journalism writing about biomedical science. They may choose to specialize in a field, such as gerontology or microbiology, or pursue doctoral degrees. Some aspiring doctors also get education in biomedical science.
Prospective biomedical science students have many international options from universities. They can also enroll in online classes for added flexibility. To begin, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Master in Medical EngineeringMedical Engineering is a field with excellent career prospects and KTH is a leading technical university promoting state-of-the-art education in this area. Prospective Master’s students can expect to receive a solid foundation in advanced, modern applications, as well as relevant research collaborations with the globally recognised medical environment of Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset. Programme outlineThe Master’s programme teaches the advantages and limitations of the current technology behind clinical applications. Students are given the knowledge base that is necessary to improve and develop the medical technology of the future. One important field is imaging techniques, such as ultrasound and MRI. Another main area is simulation analysis – the development of software to create virtual environments in order to analyse processes in, for example, healthcare. A third major field is biomedical implants, dealing with the construction of artificial body parts.Patient safety is an essential part of the education and the safety perspective is present in every course of the programme.Seven mandatory, basic courses are given during the programme, mainly in the first year. The second year consists of conditionally elective, advanced courses and a Master thesis project, which is carried out during one semester. There are also good opportunities to study a semester or to perform the Master’s thesis project abroad.Degree projectA final degree project is carried out at the end of the educational programme (usually in the fourth term). This project is a stepping stone to either an academic career or to working in industry, and can be carried out at an industrial company, a hospital or at an academic institution in Sweden or abroad.Career prospectsThe five-year Medical Engineering Bachelor’s programme started at STH in 2008. It was the first programme in Sweden with a focus on medical engineering throughout the whole education.The Medical Engineering Master’s programme offers competence to produce and develop medical technology as part of a project group, in private companies or healthcare. A broad professional role makes it possible to work in functional areas such as technical development, sales or administrative project management, depending on competence and personal interest.Healthcare is becoming increasingly technologically advanced; an ageing population requires technical aids and the first generation of medical engineers has reached retirement age. Economic and demographic changes are causing structural reforms in society and healthcare. This raises a need for professionals with an understanding of both technology and medicine, of which there currently is a lack.... [-]

Experimental Internal Medicine
The track Experimental Internal Medicine is a collaborative effort by the University of Amsterdam (UvA) Faculty of Science and the Academic Medical Centre (AMC). Internationally renowned AMC research groups engaged in modern clinical and translational research have put together challenging courses. These courses provide the participants with a thorough background on modern, state-of-the-art research in the experimental internal medicine. Programme OutlineThe first course is Molecular Biology of the Cell. Students will be given training in the analysis of chemical structures, structure function relationships and innovative, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics-based measuring systems.The second course is Cardiovascular diseases. The basic and clinical aspects of three large clinical cardiological syndromes will be discussed in detail. These include: cardiac pump function and heart failure, cardiac excitation and sudden cardiac death, vascular pathology and ischemic heart disease. Attention will be paid to the most current state of scientific insights in these three areas, the clinical expression of diseases therein, and to the experimental techniques, and animal models to unravel the biological underpinnings of normal and diseased states.The third course is Endocrinology. The endocrinological aspects of three large clinical areas will be discussed in detail. These include: stress, reproduction & growth, and metabolism. Attention will be paid to the most current state of endocrinological insights in these areas, clinical expression of diseases therein, and to the experimental techniques, and animal models to unravel the biological underpinnings of normal and diseased states.In both courses the teachers are highly active in the field. Either as a senior investigator or a medical doctor or both.The remainder of the programme provides elective courses and major practical training, whereby students carry out research projects. The AMC offers research opportunities in a virtually every specialism, with special emphasis on Internal Medicine. These include, nephrology, pulmonology, infectious diseases, cardiology, vascular medicine, gastro-intestinal diseases and hepatology. Generally we advise to do the first traineeship at the Science faculty's Swammerdam Institute of Life Sciences (SILS) to get a proper grip on the necessary experimental approaches.
