Human medicine deals with issues how to maintain human health conditions, prevent from illness and treat it. Human medicine is a health science based on biomedical research. The study field has many multidisciplinary fields, such as biomedical engineering, disaster medicine, hospital medicine, environmental medicine, travel medicine, evolutionary medicine, forensic medicine, medical ethics, sexual medicine, addiction medicine, laser medicine, therapeutics, pain medicine, nosology, medical humanities, pharmacogenomics, urgent care and etc. The field has a wide spectrum of health professionals: bioengineers, pharmacists, therapists, nurses, laboratory scientists and etc. Most of the basic sciences of the field are: genetics, immunology, neurology, psychiatry, neuroscience, microbiology, epidemiology, molecular biology, histology, toxicology, cytology, biostatistics, pharmacology, nutrition science, biophysics, medical physics, biochemistry, pathology, embryology, photobiology, endocrinology, anatomy, radiobiology and biomechanics.
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.
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.
The program promotes excellence and educates students on the significant issues in Neuroscience. The challenging curricula includes mandatory taught courses which cover the main aspects of Neuroscience and a number of elective courses enabling students to broaden their knowledge of other relevantfields.
Public Health is about preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the efforts of society. Whether you are already a working professional in this area, or new to the subject, this is the ideal programme for those wishing to address today’s problems in public health.

This master's degree is the continuation of the URV-specific degree in Anthropology of Medicine (1994-2000), and the Master's Degree in Medical Anthropology and Global Health (2005-2014). Its aim is to provide students with a solid foundation in the theories, techniques and methodologies of medical anthropology. On graduating they should be able to translate social problems into anthropological research questions and transform the research into practical policies, thus contributing to social innovation and new health care models. It is taught over two years in both Romance languages and English. It is unique in southern Europe and acts as a link between Europe, Latin America and African countries.
This programme offers an innovative approach to learning, meeting the training needs for health professionals interested in a career in public health or those seeking new skills in this area.
This online Imaging MSc programme from the University of Edinburgh is the first online programme that allows the student to focus on their specific imaging theme. Choose from 5 imaging themes, including clinical / medical imaging (e.g. cardio-thoracic imaging & oncologic imaging); neuroimaging for research; pre-clinical / veterinary imaging; imaging sciences and light microscopy.
The Master of Science (M.S.) Degree is a research-oriented degree within the general field of epidemiology. It includes the preparation of a thesis or comprehensive examination and is appropriate for students intending to go into a research career.
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.
