    How does a disease develop in a patient or model system? Which substances can influence this process? How is effective medication designed? Can you cure diseases with embryonic stem cells?

    You study the causes and pathophysiology of diseases and intervention with drugs. The programme is interdisciplinary covering the whole range of drug development disciplines from basic drug target discovery and molecular modeling of new entities and molecular targets,to pharmacoepidemiology and post marketing surveillance.

    The main feature of the programme are research projects in which you will learn about conducting research by actually doing it. You will independently perform experiments and go through the whole process of conducting science developing skills such as studying scientific literature, formulating hypotheses, designing and performing experiments, and presenting your results. The programme therefore is a good preparation for a PhD programme or for independent practice of science in a future job.

    You can either choose to design your programme tailored to your individual research interest or choose a specialisation. Available specialisations:Toxicology and Drug Disposition, with which you focus on adverse drug reactions and toxicokinetics of drugs, or Pharmacoepidemiology which studies the use of and the effects of drugs in populations.

    Job perspectives
    When you have finished the Master's programme in Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences you have multiple career options. You can for example start a research career but also chose for a position that links science to business and policy.

    Researcher (usually as a PhD) in a variety of organizations:

    * Universities
    * Academic and general hospitals
    * Pharmaceutical or biomedical industries

    Positions linking medical pharmaceutical sciences to a business or policy strategy in:

    * Governmental and semi-governmental institutions such as the Medicines Evaluation Board or the Ministry of Health and Welfare
    * Societal organizations

    Specialisations / Tracks
    * Toxicology and Drug Disposition(specialization) Focuses on adverse drug reactions and toxicokinetics of drugs.

    It offers modules in toxicology, ranging from molecular studies, cellular stress, teratology to clinical toxicology and post-marketing surveillance.


    * Pharmacoepidemiology(specialization) Studies the use and effects of drugs in populations.

    Studies the use and effects of drugs in populations.

    This specialisation combines pharmacovigilance, database research, observational and trial intervention methodology and utilization studies with specific attention to the role of drugs in ageing populations.



    Credits per year: 60 ECTS; most courses are 5 ECTS.

    Study abroad

    * Study abroad is recommended
    * For an average of 20 weeks
    * Maximum of 60 EC
