Medical Biology is the cornerstone of modern health care, spanning the molecular mechanisms of a virus to the population dynamics of the malaria parasite. The Master's programme in Medical Biology is designed for students who would like to specialise in more than just one area of biomedical research. Students can combine a specialisation in Oncology with research in parasitology or immunology, for example. This programme is structured in such a way that students are trained as broadly specialised medical biologists.
This programme is particularly well-suited to students with broad medical interests who would like to conduct research, and apply their medical knowledge in fields such as health care policy or medical journalism. Bastiaan Leerkotte Studying Medical Biology at the University of Amsterdam
The Master's programme in Medical Biology is closely affiliated with the University of Amsterdam Academic Medical Center (AMC-UvA) and the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences (SILS). The programme also cooperates with various institutes both within and outside the UvA, including the Dutch Cancer Institute.
What our students say
‘I chose to study at the UvA because it reflects the liberal character which is so typical for Amsterdam. The university offers a framework with sufficient freedom for students to determine their own study path, yet provides enough guidance when needed.'
Medical Biology is a track of the Master's programme in Biomedical Sciences. The Master's programme in Biomedical Sciences has been legally accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme, students will receive a legally accredited Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences and the title of Master of Science (MSc).
Applicants for the MSc in Medical Biology must hold a Dutch Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences or Neuroscience.
