Biomedicine is a research area at the interface of sciences, anatomy, physiology, and medicine. Biomedicine bridges between disciplines by combining quantitative methods from sciences and clinical research to answer questions from basic and clinical medicine. Thereby, biomedicine contributes to unravel the functions and causes of diseases of the human body and to develop new approaches to diagnostics and therapeutics. Biomedicine enables the translation of results from basic sciences to the clinical application and to ask new questions in basic sciences. Biomedicine is directed to all students with a strong interest for the sciences and medicine. The courses address those enjoying Chemistry, Physics and Biology, those interested in understanding the anatomy and function of the human body and those curious to learn how diseases arise, how diseases can be diagnosed and cured. Students should enjoy planning and performing experiments or to participate in clinical studies. Biomedicine is a real alternative to medicine, if you are mostly interested in applied medicial laboratory science. Biomedicine is not suited for students that failed to be accepted into Medical school and who wish to enter Medical School via Biomedicine. There is no facilitated entry into Medical School from Biomedicine , acceptance into Medical School will depend on the general conditions set by the Faculty of Medicine. Very few courses from Biomedicine may be credited upon request to the Dean of Studies for Medicine. The University of Zurich has an international top position in Biology, medical sciences and clinical research at the University Hospital Zurich. Biomedicine builds on this strength. Option for 2 years.
