Curriculum Planning

Interdisciplinary Master Program in Molecular Medicine
Academic Year 2024

Group A – Domestic Students

The program is designed with a minimum graduation credit requirement, consisting of a total of 13 credits for required and elective courses. It offers a multidisciplinary approach with 4 credits of core required courses to allow students to pursue research-oriented elective courses based on disease-related themes, fostering independent and self-directed learning. These elective courses are arranged as part of the graduation credits.

Core Required Courses:

1st Semester: “Disease and Health Special Topics” (2 credits), which is facilitated by physician-scientists and employs a problem-based learning approach, encouraging more interactive discussions and problem-solving between faculty and students.

2nd Semester: “Quantitative Data Analysis” (2 credits) serves as a fundamental information course, ensuring that biomedical students are well-versed in the logical algorithms and data processing methods of biomedical databases.

The content of required and elective course planning is as follows:
