Program Details :


IUHS Students enrolled in the Masters MSc program to the IUHS MD program:

Masters programs at IUHS are designed to be done concurrently or within the MD program to allow students to explore their areas of interest or build out their knowledgebase. The programs are either clinically oriented science based such as the BioMedical or discipline focused track or applied clinical epidemiological based such as the International Public Health track.


These programs utilise the core preclinical curriculum to orient the student to the medical circumstances of health care. Additional advanced science courses and examinations are selected to build out the academics of the option the student chooses. A comprehensive common content examination is part of all Masters level degree tracks.


The Masters of Science in Biomedical Science (BMS) or in a specific discipline are both designed as two-year programs intended to train students in foundational medical sciences with emphasis on the core-teachings of pathophysiology of human disease.


The Public Health track of the Masters program emphasizes the analysis of the applied practices of medicine on the pathophysiology of human disease. 


The discipline focused and public health options both involve a thesis. Most thesis projects also result in publications.

All students must complete the program in good standing and in compliance with the academic regulations of the medical school.
