BeInPM

Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA), Universitat de Barcelona (UB), Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II (UNINA), and the European Scientific Institute (ESI) are proud to introduce the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree (EMJMD) Be In Precision Medicine (BeInPM) – otherwise named Biosciences and Bioengineering Innovations for Precision Medicine.

About the BeInPM programme

Logo BeINPM
Threats related to malnutrition, pollution, globalization, the uncontrolled spread of diseases, will impact the social fabric of the world with implications for health. Facing these threats, maintaining high health standards, require flawless prevention, better diagnosis and targeted therapy treatment, all with a controlled budget. The latter three pillars required for performant healthcare imply global scientific approaches by mastering key scientific disciplines: bioengineering, medical biotechnology and clinical research, and offering prevention and disease treatment that consider the patient specificity.

Patient specificity, you said? Let’s say PRECISION MEDICINE! Precision Medicine (PM), which refers to treatment strategies that consider the patient specificity and variability in terms of people’s genes, their environment and lifestyles, by providing the right patient with the right treatment. The purpose of the BeInPM programme is to address the issue of precision medicine in the context of fast changes in healthcare systems and the merging of novel approaches. It provides a broad multidisciplinary training in the emerging field of Precision Medicine (PM).

The programme offers you the opportunity to gain the skills will make you an expert in this new field, with a broad technical management mindset regarding the implementation and management of Precision Medicine.

Be in Precision Medicine is an Erasmus Mundus European Programme selected and financed by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA). BeInPM is a one-year, 60 ECTS credits, Master degree entirely taught in English. It is open to well-trained students who have completed a Bachelor degree or equivalent degree (240 ECTS), in a relevant field, and with a good command of the English language.

Students attend each of the two semesters at different Partner Universities. Students start the BeInPM programme with a very intensive Summer School, and finish it with a more entertaining one. Both are organised at the European Scientific Institute at Archamps (France, www.esi-archamps.eu). Upon completion, successful students will be awarded a prestigious Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD).

Career Outcomes

The competencies acquired during the two semesters and summers schools will equip students to assume leadership roles straightaway in many areas related to Precision Medicine. After completing their studies, graduates will predominantly work as health professionals, engineers in the medical and MedTech sectors, or data management.
