Master in Biomedical Science

Master in Biomedical Science

The Biomedical Science Graduate Study Program has a mission to shape the mindset of young scientists who are logical, creative and innovative. Students enrolled to this program are trained to search and develop science to explain the phenomenon of life in the level of molecular, cellular, organ and organism. With an exclusively designed curriculum, students are not only encouraged to understand about molecular biology, but also to apply scientific theory to prevent, treat as well as provide rehabilitation for the diseases.

Biomedical science is branch of medicine that use basic principle and knowledge of natural science (biology, chemistry and physics) to explain the phenomenon of life at the level of molecule, cell, organ and organism, in relation with disease as well as find and develop the suitable material to prevent and treat the destruction because of the disease.

The aim to study biomedical science is to handle health/medicine problem that has not been solved with clinical approach, not only supporting clinical approach. As the scope of biomedical science is very large, there are plenty of chances for those who are not doctor with qualification of natural science to develop their interests in this field. Approaches in Biomedical Science is done through laboratory method, be it biological tests from patient, environment or animal experience.

Master and Doctoral Program in Biomedical Science FKUI is the first postgraduate program in Universitas Indonesia. It was established on 11 August 1979 under official name “Program Pendidikan Pascasarjana Ilmu Kedokteran Dasar” (P3S IKD) which was the master/graduate program. Since 1990, the name was modified to be “program studi ilmu Biomedik” which developed to academic pathway and managed by FKUI.
