Master’s (12 to 30 months) and Doctorate (24 to 60 months)

It emphasizes interdisciplinarity, critical scientific training, quality of the content and the mission to nucleate research. The program’s underlying principle is the constant search for academic excellence and a commitment to research. This approach has resulted in an interdisciplinary graduate program embracing specific yet complementary fields of knowledge that are linked to active and productive lines of research. The program is intended for both physicians and non-physicians.
