Aim of the Molecular Medicine Master and Doctorate Programme, coordinated by the Molecular Medicine Department, Institute of Health
Molecular Medicine is a multidisciplinary science field: it forms a basis for research to diagnose and treat diseases, with the help of the developments in biology, biochemistry and other relevant fields.
The aim of the molecular medicine education is to impart to the researchers the knowledge required to acquire and use information in biology, computer sciences, mathematics, statistics, chemistry, engineering etc., the skills to think in a multidisciplinary way, and the insight in (sub) disciplines, which are important in molecular medicine research. The Molecular Medicine Master and Doctorate Programme graduates will be able to prepare a plan of investigation in which are described the hypothesis, the background, the planning, the methods and the analysis; and set up and carry out new plans of investigation and hypothesis (e.g. on protein structure, gene variations, chemical inhibition, molecular mechanisms of various diseases and treatment) with the help of the developing technology.
Within this framework, the Molecular Medicine Master and Doctorate Programme is very important to train new and qualified researchers and academicians in this field.
The main aim of the Molecular Medicine Master and Doctorate Programme is to train scientifically qualified researchers who are able to create translational connections between (sub) disciplines, such as molecular basis of diseases, treatment, prevention, general clinical biochemistry and genetics; using patient-focused classic medicine and modern biology techniques.
Learning Objectives : The Master's Programme in Molecular Medicine aims to train bachelor students to become qualified researchers with insight in ethical aspects of research.
Learning Outcomes : The graduated Master of Science in Molecular Medicine will have an academic attitude, academic skills and specific knowledge with respect to molecular medicine and related research.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR MOLECULAR MEDICINE MASTER PROGRAMME
MOLECULAR MEDICINE MASTER
Students with a min. of 4-year bachelor's degree in Biology, Pharmacology, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine, Molecular Biology and Genetics or Biotechnology are eligible to the Master's Programme in Molecular Medicine.
STRUCTURE AND CONTENTS OF THE MOLECULAR MEDICINE MASTER PROGRAMME
Duration of the programme is two years. Students need to renew their registration every semester. The Master's Programme in Molecular Medicine is composed of two main items. First item includes obligatory and elective courses covering the basis of Molecular Medicine.
If a student wants to follow a course which is not indicated, at the institute or another university, an individual approval by the supervisor is required. Second item includes theoretical and laboratory studies with the guidance of the supervisor. Students start their thesis on the second year.
The program's lessons are going in an interactive way by the use powerpoint slide show and internet to find data sourses that are related to lessons if needed. To get more benefit from lessons, students can contact to their teachers and to each other by e-mail and students academic information system of yeditepe university website.
GENERAL CONCEPTS ABOUT THE PROGRAM
In order to receive the degree of Master of Science in Molecular Medicine, a student has to complete 120 ECTS
60 ECTS ( courses) + 60 ECTS (Thesis)= 120 ECTS
Students must choose obligatory lessons, then the rest of ECTS must be completed with elective lessons to obtain 30 ECTS in total. The elective lessons which taken by the students could not be arranged under % 25 of total attented lessons.
Each student must give at least one seminar during the whole program.
Passing mark for master student is 70 ( CC ). This mark involves % 40 of midterm plus % 60 of final exam.
Each lesson's obligatory attending percentage is 80 % (minimum)
Course language is Turkish and English.
