The Bachelor’s programme in Medical Biology is intended to provide students with the necessary specialist knowledge, skills and methods of a biological-medical and occupational education in such a way as to enable them to carry out scientific work, to critically classify scientific findings and to carry out practical work in laboratories.
In the 1st and 2nd year of study the essential biological and medical basic knowledge is imparted. In the field of biology, these are the classical basics of botany and zoology as well as the molecular and cell-biologically oriented areas of developmental biology and microbiology. Furthermore, the basic contents of statistics, physics and general chemistry are taught. From the field of theoretical medicine, the contents of anatomy with a focus on cell biology, histology and macroscopic anatomy, physiology and biochemistry are added. The theoretical knowledge transfer is supplemented by exercises and internships.
In the 3rd year of study there will be a specialisation in molecular and cell biology. In addition, students have the opportunity to choose two subjects in the biological fields:
- Developmental biology,
and a medical specialty:
- Immunology and virology,
- pharmacology and toxicology.
In the second half of the 3rd academic year, a laboratory practice phase is held in a research laboratory (three-week in-depth internship). Building on this, the Bachelor project (approx. four months) will be implemented.
