Clinical, pre-clinical and translational research form the backbone of medical science. However, the focus still remains on understanding the human body, diseases and functional aspects covering patho-physiology, disease etiology and the like. These require understanding the basic biological principles on how human body works, diagnosing, curing and treating diseases and knowledge on how cells, organs and systems function in the human body. A Masters level programme in Medical Science is proposed that will address the exciting and dynamic areas of human immune-system and disease biology in a holistic manner.
To meet this objective RCB, has taken a lead in designing a Masters level degree programme in Medical Sciences. The framework of the programme has been designed with an objective to provide knowledge in life sciences with emphasis on human biology, clinical and translational research. The programme will be offered deriving expertise from within RCB as well as from other national institutions including National Institute of Immunology (NII), Translational Health Science and Technology Institute (THSTI), National Institute of Biomedical Genomics (NIBMG).
The overall aim of this course shall be to build the aspects of practical learning, debates and research skills for medical and related graduates that will enhance educational experience and contribute to personal growth with learning on life-long skills.
