biomedicine is motivated by the need for a cross-border education in science
and medicine. The Biomedicine programmes provide an education with a width and
depth in basic chemistry and biology as well as knowledge of how these
disciplines can be linked and applied in medical research and practice.
for a specific program has arisen from the increased knowledge and
technological development during the last decades. The aim is that students
from this education should be able to conduct biomedical research and
development work within universities as well as healthcare organizations and
companies, but also that they can act as trustees, intermediaries and
developers of biomedical knowledge in other roles, such as journalists,
teachers and politicians. A Biomedicine professional therefore has a double meaning. First,
it is a designation of the profession to conduct research and development in
the field. Second, it is a term of the cultural / academic role of being a
carrier, intermediary and developer of biomedical knowledge and tradition in
relation to other society.
these roles require that the education holds an ambitious level that trains
high learning rates, high analytical ability and creativity alongside
appropriate practical skills. The need for a new occupational group as a leader
and tradition carrier in basic medical research and laboratory medicine is also
motivated by increasing difficulties in recruiting those who previously had the
primary role - physicians.
