General Information

The field of medical pharmaceutical sciences is multidisciplinary, focusing on the causes and pathophysiology of diseases and intervention with drugs. Within the programme, researchers from the natural sciences (pharmacists, biologists, chemists and mathematicians) cooperate with medical scientists (both researchers and doctors) in training young medical pharmaceutical scientists. Various research groups are involved. Students of this programme can focus on fundamental or applied research, or a combination of both. The degree programme thus offers many possibilities.

Career Prospects

The Master's degree programme in Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences provides excellent preparation for a career in research. Researchers find jobs in a variety of organizations, including universities, academic and general hospitals, governmental and semigovernmental institutions and the pharmaceutical or biomedical industries. This degree programme can also serve as good preparation for other jobs at an academic level, as during the independent research projects you not only learn how to conduct research but also how to cooperate, communicate (orally and in writing) and present and defend your own ideas.

In addition to research, graduates also find jobs in companies, government institutions and social organizations. This often involves linking medical pharmaceutical science to, for example, a business or policy strategy. Examples not only include various positions within the pharmaceutical industry, but also institutions such as the Medicines Evaluation Board, an organization that deals with the admission of drugs to the Dutch Market, or the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport.

Admission

Admission to the Master’s degree programme requires a Bachelor’s degree in one of the following fields: Pharmaceutical Sciences, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, or Medicine. Admission is on an individual basis at the discretion of the Board of Examiners.
