The Translational Medicine programme from University of Helsinki aims to facilitate new therapies and medical procedures by implementing research findings in patient care, and by applying clinical data in research. This requires understanding of both science and medicine.
The curriculum utilizes interactive, student-centred educational approaches. Students have direct interactions with both researchers and clinicians, which promotes their interdisciplinary communication skills. Choice of study track can be done during the first study year: options are cancer, regenerative medicine, metabolic disorders, neuroscience and psychobiology, and cross-disciplinary translational medicine.
Health sciences and translational medicine are fields with growing importance as the population ages and the costs of new therapies steadily increase. Thus, the demand for well-trained specialists in the field of translational medicine is likely to increase, providing excellent career prospects globally. Recruitment to such enterprises occurs both at the graduate (MSc) and postgraduate (PhD) levels.
Around 40% of our graduates have been directly employed within the private sector in Finland or abroad. More than half of the graduates continue to doctoral studies.
