About

Teaching focuses on the acquisition of key areas of expertise necessary for the development of new pre-clinical and clinical medical applications. This training gives students an in-depth knowledge of basic cellular functions, systems that transmit signals inside and among cells, human biology, and the normal and pathological functioning of the most important systems of the human organism.

Considerable attention is also paid to learning and applying techniques used in medical biology, as well as to personal research work.

University studies develop, in addition to specific academic skills, a great many transverse skills such as oral and written communication, critical, analytical and summarising faculties, abilities in research, management of bibliographic resources and knowledge of the specific scientific litterature, the learning and transmission of knowledge, independence and the ability to make judgments in the field of specialisation and overlapping areas.

This panoply of skills, combined with specialist knowledge acquired in the course of studies, is excellent preparation for a wide range of employment opportunities and economic sectors.
