About

The Global Master's Programme in Biomedicine at Karolinska Institutet gives students an in-depth knowledge within the broad and expanding biomedical field and specialises in creating new and advanced skills for the improvement of human health.

Overview

The Biomedicine programme from the Karolinska Institutet provides cutting edge knowledge and essential practical skills for an academic research career within the field of molecular medicine. It focuses on understanding disease mechanisms at a molecular level, particularly for the most common and widespread diseases, with the aim of developing future methods for the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases.

Karolinska Institutet (KI) is one of the world's leading universities in the biomedical field. The Global Master's Programme in Biomedicine is research-oriented and runs in close association with KI's renowned research environment. 

The programme focuses on basic biological knowledge and how it is used to drive medical developments forward. The first part of the programme provides a general, advanced biomedical base. Students may then develop a more personalised study through deeper exploration of one of KI's research areas, by taking elective courses and/or performing independent research projects.

Career opportunities

  • The programme provides a solid foundation for graduates wishing to continue with studies at the doctoral level (PhD). 
  • It also provides possibilities for a career in the field of research, or for research-related occupations, both within academia or the life science industry.
