B.Med Curriculum

Learn about our B.Med Curriculum, a three-year programme consisting of nine modules and a bachelor’s thesis.

Going beyond the format of traditional medical instruction, EDU’s B.Med curriculum is inspired by the most reputable modern medical schools in the world.

Going beyond the format of traditional medical instruction, EDU’s Bachelor of Medicine is inspired by the most reputable modern medical schools in the world. The point of departure for the development of the curriculum is the WFME Global Standards as published by the Institute for International Medical Education (IIME) Core Committee. 

The IIME Core Committee has developed these “global minimum essential requirements” (GMER) and specified a concrete set of global minimum learning outcomes for each of them. The 60 overarching learning objectives form the comprehensive framework of knowledge that a future doctor must master. Our curriculum is constructed around these standards.

Clinical Rotations & Practical Skills

Because we are dedicated to training future physicians who will deliver the highest possible quality of medical treatment to their patients, this curriculum places a strong emphasis on practical experience. The programme is delivered in a holistic one course per trimester structure of intensive practical training rotations (4 weeks) in highly supervised small student teams of five.

Career Outlook

EDU’s B.Med degree is both an academic degree and a professional qualification, opening a variety of interesting career options in healthcare. Graduates of EDU’s B.Med Programme are equally invited to join EDU’s Master’s Degree programme (expected to launch in 2019). A master’s degree is required in order to obtain the qualification needed to be a medical doctor within the European Union.
