Program Description

Academic bachelor in Biology (profile "Biomedicine") provides in-depth study of both biological and fundamental medical disciplines. When creating the course, we have accumulated  all the best that was developed and tested at the Biomedical faculty of the University in the framework of six-year education (specialty) in the fields of "Medical biochemistry", "Medical Biophysics" and "Medical Cybernetics" in it.

In the process of learning, students get a holistic view of the functioning of living systems at all levels of the organization from molecular to organismic. The main attention is focused on the study of molecular and physiological processes in the body in normal and pathological conditions, as well as on modern medical and biological technologies used in scientific and clinical biomedical research. Lecture courses are held in parallel with practical classes, where students study the basic laws and rules of research work in the laboratory. Unlike many non-medical universities, we have experience in training specialists to work on biomedical profile!

A graduate who has mastered this bachelor's program and hastily passed the state final certification, is awarded the qualification of "Bachelor" in the direction of training 06.03.01 "Biology".
