Master's in Biomedical Science, Mentions in Reproductive Biology, Applied Microbiology, and Applied Physiology


The Master's in Biomedical Sciences Program aims to deepen knowledge in particular areas of Biomedical Sciences, enabling students to perform basic or applied research through the use of the scientific method.

The Master's in Biomedical Sciences is an option to be considered mainly by professionals trained in biology coming from fields such as Medicine, Odontology, Biological Sciences, Medical Technology, Obstetrics and Kinesiotherapy, among others, who want to opt for a more solid conceptual and experimental training. In this sense, the Master's Degree will consolidate their training, granting them a greater level academic degree in specific disciplines.
