This program aims to enable researchers and executives on bridging the knowledge from basic scientific research into clinical research to create novel treatments, new medical devices, and medical procedures for disease prevention and diagnostics. The program provides individuals and start-ups with an excellent opportunity to pursue their medical project in a professional and supportive environment. By performing our blended MAS program, participants will benefit from:
Personalized continuous education
Depending on your needs we offer a CAS, DAS or MAS. The program consists of 6 modules covering different aspects relevant for the development and commercialization of medicinal products and medical devices. The program is open for all academic disciplines. For academics without a background in natural science, engineering or medicine, a special module «Prerequisites» has been developed. It will allow those participants to acquire fundamental scientific-medical knowledge required for the program.
Project-focused and practice-oriented
The study program is embedded in sitem-insel, which, in collaboration with partners, provides participants access to a vast amount of hightech facilities and services.
MAS students perform activities that are designed to specially address aspects relevant to their projects. This includes regular project discussions with peers and experts, the selection of applicable case studies and site visits at companies, which will give them the opportunity to apply knowledge, skill sets and techniques that they have gained from the classroom in real life situations.
Scientific and entrepreneurial translation
The program covers all relevant aspects of the translational process – i.e. entrepreneurial know-how in addition to all basic scientific, clinical and technical knowledge.
Expertise of teachers and supervisors
The teachers and supervisors of this program are from research and development oriented private companies, scientists from universities, ETH and FHS, collaborators from regulatory agencies, financial experts and clinicians.
The study program offers «blended learning», i.e. e-learning complemented with face-to-face concept lectures, peer learning sessions and interactive discussions with specialists. Consequently, the program permits you to organize your daily workload and study time according to your background and your specific needs, while the face-to-face sessions allow networking with experts and personal contact with your peers.
Start and Duration
The study program starts in September each year (date to be announced) and is designed for a duration of minimum 4 semesters (MAS, DAS) or 3 semesters (CAS), respectively.
