MSc in Medical Research Methodology

The Medical School of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) is launching a Postgraduate Course (MSc) in “Medical Research Methodology” for the seventh consecutive year (Government Gazette t.B ‘3456 / 19.08.2020). The purpose of the program is to train a wide range of scientists in cutting-edge methodologies and technologies, which will help them design and conduct research projects, promoting their academic and professional careers.

The main features of this MSc, which make it especially attractive, are:

  • Short duration: From February to January (12 months), students will have completed a total of 75 credits (ECTS), corresponding to the five (5) compulsory (Introduction to Statistics, Clinical Research Methodology, Basic Research Methodology, How to write a paper or a grant proposal, Introduction to Bioethics-Publication ethics) and in the three (3) selected courses (selected from: Advanced Statistics, Systematic Review and Meta-analysis, Computational Medical Research, Data Mining, Advanced Techniques in Medical Research, Qualitative Research, Clinical Trials), including a thesis (MSc thesis).
  • Blended form: Combination of onsite and online learning in order to enable better time management. Only three (3) weeks of physical presence are required (one week in February, one in April and one in June). Exceptionally this academic year the conduct of courses with physical presence (lasting three weeks) will depend on the course of CoViD-19 and the relevant decisions of the Assembly of the Department of Medicine and the Senate of AUTh. In any case, the final decision on the possible replacement of distance learning with distance education in the context of avoiding the spread of CoViD-19, will be taken before the start of the course, so that students can schedule their stay in Thessaloniki.
  • English language: To ensure an international group of distinguished tutors and an international class of fellow students, all modules are held in English.
  • Competitive price: Fees are paid in three divided installments, making this MSc an attractive and affordable option for busy professionals.

Potential students include (indicatively, but not exclusively) medical doctors, dentists, veterinarians, biologists, molecular biologists, bio-engineers, biochemists, pharmacists, nurses, pharmaceutical industry or health economics professionals.

For further information, please, visit mrm.med.auth.gr and contact MSc secretariat at info-mrm@auth.gr.

In addition, for second consecutive year and in accordance with the relevant Government Gazette (vol. BD 3456 / 19.08.2020), the MSc accepts as “participating visitors” (listeners) graduates of Greek or foreign institutions of a related field, who wish to attend up to three (3) individual courses without having been admitted to the MSc. The “participating visitors” receive a certificate of attendance, once they have completed the obligations arising from the requirements of each course. Tuition fees of 600 euros (€) are paid for attending the courses. In case someone chooses to attend three (3) courses, tuition fees amount to 1,500 euros (€). Applications from “participating visitors” are accepted up to two (2) weeks before the start of the respective courses.

Προκήρυξη Αγγλόφωνου Προγράμματος Μεταπτυχιακών Σπουδών στην Ιατρική Ερευνητική Μεθοδολογία

 Το Τμήμα Ιατρικής του Αριστοτελείου Πανεπιστημίου Θεσσαλονίκης ανακοινώνει την προκήρυξη για πέμπτη χρονιά του προγράμματος μεταπτυχιακών σπουδών (MSc) για επαγγελματίες υγείας, στην Ιατρική Ερευνητική Μεθοδολογία. Σκοπός του προγράμματος είναι η εκπαίδευση ενός ευρέος φάσματος επιστημόνων σε μεθοδολογίες και τεχνολογίες αιχμής, που θα τους βοηθήσουν να σχεδιάζουν και να εκπονούν ερευνητικά προγράμματα, προάγοντας την ακαδημαϊκή και επαγγελματική τους σταδιοδρομία.

Τα κύρια χαρακτηριστικά του προγράμματος, που το καθιστούν ιδιαίτερα ελκυστικό, είναι:

  1. Μικρή διάρκεια: Από το Φεβρουάριο έως τον Ιανουάριο (12 μήνες), οι φοιτητές θα έχουν ολοκληρώσει το σύνολο των 75 διδακτικών μονάδων (ECTS), που αντιστοιχούν στα πέντε υποχρεωτικά (Introduction to Statistics, Clinical Research Methodology, Basic Sciences Methodology, How to write a paper or a grant proposal, Introduction to Bioethics-Publication ethics) και τα τρία επιλεγόμενα μαθήματα (επιλογή από: Advanced Statistics, Systematic Review & Meta-analysis, Computational Medical Research, Data Mining, Advanced Techniques in Medical Research, Qualitative Research, Clinical Trials), συμπεριλαμβανομένης της κύριας μεταπτυχιακής διπλωματικής εργασίας (MSc thesis).
  2. Ευέλικτη, μικτή μορφή: Συνδυασμός φυσικής (on-site) και διαδικτυακής (on-line) παρουσίας, ώστε να καταστεί δυνατή η καλύτερη διαχείριση του χρόνου. Απαιτούνται μόνον τρεις εβδομάδες φυσικής παρουσίας (μία εβδομάδα τον Φεβρουάριο, μία τον Απρίλιο και μία τον Ιούνιο), ώστε να εξασφαλιστεί η μέγιστη ευελιξία.
  3. Διεξαγωγή μαθημάτων στην αγγλική γλώσσα: Με αυτόν τον τρόπο διασφαλίζεται η παρουσία μίας διεθνούς ομάδας διακεκριμένων καθηγητών, και μία διεθνής τάξη συμφοιτητών.
  4. Ανταγωνιστικά δίδακτρα: Τα δίδακτρα καταβάλλονται σε τρεις δόσεις, καθιστώντας το μεταπτυχιακό ελκυστική και προσιτή επιλογή για πολυάσχολους επαγγελματίες.

Το μεταπτυχιακό πρόγραμμα απευθύνεται σε αποφοίτους Ιατρικής, Οδοντιατρικής, Βιολογίας, Βιο-Τεχνολογίας, Φαρμακευτικής, Νοσηλευτικής, και εργαζομένους στους τομείς της Φαρμακευτικής Βιομηχανίας και των Οικονομικών της Υγείας.
