Programme and contents
The results of 2013 admission have been published, see admission procedure.
The goal of TRANSMED is to train students coming from multiple disciplines to pursue successful careers in research and application of translational medicine. From the students the interdisciplinary nature of TRANSMED requires dedication and good study skills.
The core of the 2-year, full time Master's programme consists of medical sciences, up-to-date methodology, interdisciplinary communication skills and practical training in research groups. Clinical rounds with a specialist physician mentor at the Helsinki University Hospital will permit the students to directly encounter the practice of medicine, from the viewpoint of a physician and a patient.
After completion of their Master of Science degree in Translational Medicine the students are eligible and strongly encouraged to apply to the several PhD training programmes within the Faculty of Medicine, or in other Faculties and Universities.
WHAT IS TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE?
Translational medicine bridges the gap between basic sciences and their application to human disease - from bench to bedside and back. This is accomplished by exploiting laboratory discoveries to develop new therapies or medical procedures as well as using patient data and samples in laboratory investigations.
