Our Master’s in Biomedical Science allows you – in the parameters of the programme – to construct a curriculum that meets your research interests and career goals. Important is that all your choices add up to a coherent programme. Your assigned mentor will help you determine your internships and theoretical education. The Board of Examinations must then approve your constructed programme.

Study programme of Biomedical Sciences
Each student must perform at least two internships, one of which must be a research internship. This Master’s programme has a strong link with research departments/institutes connected to the Radboud University Medical Center offering many internship opportunities. Depending on your specialisation and other choices in your Master’s you can focus on research at a molecular/cellular, human (clinical practice and patient care) or population level. Of course it is also possible to do a research internship outside the Radboud University. Many students choose to perform one internship outside of the Netherlands.
The second internship depends on the chosen career profile. This implies that for a student with a research profile, both internships will involve scientific research. Students in other profiles can, next to their research internship, choose a second internship related to their profile choice. This means that students with a communication profile can, for example, perform a project in the field of health communication and students with a consultancy profile, for example, in the field of health policy analysis. Many students in the consultancy or communication profile perform their internship in an organisation outside of academia.
Many Biomedical Sciences students choose to perform an internship or courses outside of the Netherlands. We encourage student mobility by advising and helping current students to perform part of their study abroad. Our specialisation coordinators and the Radboudumc international office can help students to find an internship position abroad.
