The programme is dedicated mainly to foreigners. Our BSc Medical Biology programme has been designed as an academic bridge (premedical studies) for students interested in pursuing a career as a physician or these who have never before taken introductory natural sciences courses. The programme advances students’ knowledge necessary for entry into the professional programmes in medicine and helps them to fulfil the MD programme requirements.
These undergraduate studies offer also a broad-basis programme in biology underlying the basic training for the professional biologist, biochemists, microbiologists, and biophysicists as well as provide a strong foundation for many other career opportunities. The learning outcomes provide our graduates with professional skills and knowledge required for work in medical laboratories, research institutions, sanitary-epidemiological stations, and science-based industries.
The graduate of the BSc Medical Biology programme has knowledge of basic disciplines of biology and biomedical sciences, including: developmental biology, microbiology, human anatomy, parasitology, genetics with elements of human genetics, radiology, elements of pathophysiology, basics of pharmacology, biochemistry of nutrition, applied biology in medicine, biological basics of herbal medicine, physical basis of instrumental diagnostics and physiotherapy, human immunology with elements of virology, pharmacological botany, biomaterial engineering in medicine, and biochemical methods in clinical analysis.
Training is given through: lectures, exercises, laboratory classes, field classes as well as experimental scientific practical training. The best internationally recognized scientists of the University belong to the teaching staff for this programme.
A bachelor's degree in science provides strong transferable skills for a variety of careers. Our graduates would enter biology, biotechnology and technology related career in scientific or engineering research and development, in science-based industries, medical biology and in teaching.
The Medical Biology BSc programme is in compliance with European teaching standards. Therefore, our graduates may choose to continue studying at UMCS or elsewhere in Poland or in the European Union countries.
