Translational Medicine | Master's programme

How can translational medicine revolutionize human health?

TRANSMED accepts students from suitable educational backgrounds, such as life sciences and natural sciences, engineering, psychology etc. Students’ diverse backgrounds together with their TRANSMED studies give them a unique skill set for future careers. The curriculum is organized in close collaboration with researchers and units in the Faculty of Medicine and the Helsinki University Hospital, culminating in clinical rounds in the Helsinki University Hospital.

Students learn to use the terminology and to discuss the key concepts of translational research in medical sciences. The two study tracks - Translational Research and Health Industry and Innovations - provide a solid basis for careers in medical research or in commercial enterprises in the field of human health. All students attend a course in career planning, which increases their awareness of different career options and helps them to recognise, express and market their individual competencies.
