The labour market points to the growing need for professionals with multidisciplinary training in Biomedicine, Management (of people and institutions) and in Health Data (organisation strategies, integration and analysis). It is in this context that the MSc has been set up as training in Biomedicine, organised into two branches of knowledge: Management and Computing, constituting a unique and differentiated offer in the national context.

The Master's aims to prepare professionals for the annotation and management of data allowing information to be generated for Precision Medicine. The Master additionally aims to enable students to use and develop bioinformatics strategies and tools to solve problems in Health. The contexts of application of the acquired skills include, but are not restricted to, entities providing services in Health, companies in the pharmaceutical industry, diagnostic or IT area.

It also aims to develop transversal skills such as critical analysis, autonomy, group work, consultation of reliable information, integration, analysis, communication and discussion of information, skills recognised as essential for professional success.

As a teaching/learning method, the Master uses Problem/Case Based Learning strategies and the development of soft skills (critical analysis, autonomy, group work, consultation of reliable information, integration, analysis, communication and discussion of information), skills recognised as essential for professional success.

The Master's Degree in Applied Biomedicine is structured for students who have completed the 1st cycle of studies and whose academic background shows considerable preparation in scientific disciplines related to Biomedicine. Candidates are therefore considered to have graduated in Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Genetics, Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Biological Engineering or related areas.

The Master's programme is open to both Portuguese and foreign candidates and can therefore be taught in Portuguese or English.
