  • Master in Biomedical Sciences

    This course allows you to plan your own taught programme to match your interests and experience by selecting modules from any other bioscience Masters course in the School of Life Sciences, with the advice of the course leader.

  • Master in Nutritional Epidemiology and Public Health (online Master Specialisation)

    The field of nutritional epidemiology and public health aims at elucidating the relationships between dietary intake, nutritional status and health outcomes. We train future epidemiologists in observational and intervention studies, with the aim to generate evidence for preventing disease and promoting health.

  • Master in Integrated Immunology

    The University of Oxford is a world leader in Immunology. This course, jointly owned by the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine and the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, is a one-year, full-time course comprising of two taught terms followed by a 14 week laboratory based research project within a University of Oxford laboratory.

  • Master in Tropical Medicine

    The Graduate Program in Tropical Medicine of the Institute of Tropical Medicine of São Paulo (IMTSP) had the authorization of its creation by the Board of Graduate Studies of the University of São Paulo on 20.December.2006, published in the Official Diary of the State of São Paulo and got the recommendation of CAPES (Coordination of Improvement of Higher Education Personnel), through its Scientific Technical Council, on meetings between the period from 23 to 25th of July 2007, attributing grade 05 to the Program.

  • Master in Medical Physics

    The Medical Physics Graduate Program is an interdisciplinary program sponsored by five departments: radiology, radiation oncology, physics, biomedical engineering, and occupational and environmental safety (health physics). Four academic tracks are offered: diagnostic imaging physics, radiation oncology physics, nuclear medicine physics, and health physics.

  • Master in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Forensic DNA and Serology)

    The Forensic DNA & Serology concentration is provided by the College of Pharmacy. It is structured to provide the student with a strong foundation in serology, blood spatter interpretation, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics and the theory of DNA analysis.

  • Master in Biomedical Sciences (Immunology)

    The course will allow you to expand your understanding of immunology, immunopathology and immunotherapy, to further develop skills in analytical approaches to immunodiagnosis and molecular therapeutics, as well as enhance your competence in the design and execution of a laboratory based project. You will be able to take a proactive role in research, development, evaluation and implementation of current immunological techniques while perceiving the subject in the broader perspective of health care and scientific progress.

  • Master in Occupational Therapy

    Occupational Therapy is an exciting and rewarding field working with children and adults who have physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities that interfere with their ability to engage in life's tasks. There are a variety of career options and the job outlook for OT’s is outstanding because of the shortage of practitioners. The Program in Occupational Therapy prepares students to work with children and adults who have physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities that interfere with their ability to engage in life's tasks. Occupational therapists serve as vital members of a treatment team, consulting with physicians, physical and speech therapists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, vocational counselors, teachers, other specialists, and family members. They blend a scientific knowledge of the human body and mind with an understanding of the challenges of disability, environment, and culture.
