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.

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... [-]
Do you already have a bachelor’s degree in (bio)engineering and do you want to tackle the complex problems that arise at the boundary of biology, medicine and the health sciences? Then the master’s in Biomedical Engineering [+]
The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering is a complete English taught two-year programme and leads to a joint degree from UGent and VUB. In this master's course, knowledge and skills in all fields in biomedical engineering will be given, so when you finished the Master's programme, you can be employed as generalist, and you will also be specialised in one particular field of biomedical engineering. As a student, you will be able to select any field within biomedical engineering. You will be trained to work in interdisciplinary project teams, composed of engineers and medical specialists. To prepare further for interdisciplinary teams, students and scholars are treated as equals. To train for working in a European setting, you will get knowledge in the health care situation in several countries in Europe, and you will be trained in cultural differences between European countries. ...
