Pedagogic profile 

The pedagogic profile at the master’s programme in biomedicine aims at expressing key values and outcomes of the programme. A number of qualities have been identified that permeate the curriculum, they include: engaging students in problem identification and problem solving strategies, acknowledging ethics as a quintessential feature of all biomedical work, biomedical communication is also emphasized. It is also considered important to following up the design of courses, considering how well intended learning outcomes and examination are aligned and also how well the students are prepared for the different forms of examination they encounter.

We invite students to take part in critical examination of how well we fulfill our aims. This takes place by way of student surveys. We also aim at implementing the use of exit polls for graduating students.

Below you can find the latest student survey, where we have asked students to reflect upon the central features of the programme as expressed in the pedagogic profile.
