The faculty of Medicine and Life Sciences combines the studies and research in biotechnology and medicine. Medicine is studied in its many aspects. The Licentiates of Medicine and Masters of Science (in Biotechnology) graduating from the faculty get exceptionally good skills for conducting research in personalised medicine and its applications. The medical students also get excellent skills for practicing medicine in health care organisations. In addition, the faculty also organises scientific and postgraduate medical education.
