1-33 80 05 Medical and Biological Science (majors in):

  1. Medical Biochemistry,
  2. Applied Immunology,
  3. Cytogenetics


Students study Medical and biological disciplines with in-depth theoretical training in the field of information technology, molecular biology, molecular medicine, practical skills in working with modern laboratory equipment.

Students undergo two week research training during the studies. Training based on research institutions of the national Academy of the Republic of Belarus, research centers, healthcare institutions of the Ministry of Public Health of the Republic of Belarus.

The opportunity to study the following additional disciplines: 

“Philosophy and methodological science”, “Foreign language”, “Fundamentals of information technologies” followed by a candidate’s examination and a credit necessary to enter a postgraduate course.

Graduates • able to carry out biochemical, immunological, cytogenetic, and radiobiological research at the cell, tissue, organism level aimed at peer review of pathological change level;

• able to analyze and evaluate harmful environmental factors, ionizing radiation impact on population to monitor, predict, and prevent pathological processes;

• able to solve project tasks that requires special medical and biological training; prepare expert conclusions based on the results of experiments and analysis;

• able to provide management functions;

• able to develop plans and innovation activity programs, feasibility studies on innovative projects in the field of biology and medicine.

Requirements completed higher education (bachelor’s degree);
