Students benefit from state of the art facilities of sitem-insel in addition to services and programs of the University of Bern.

Translational Medicine and Biomedical Entrepreneurship

Translational medicine is a new, process-oriented discipline that aims to translate new findings and products emerging from private-sector development and basic research into clinical applications. It seeks to professionalize the essential interaction between basic science researchers, clinicians, regulatory bodies and investors.
This study program is designed to train professionals in scientific and medical knowledge, and simultaneously in entrepreneurship skills to enable them to successfully coordinate the development and commercialization of biomedical products. The program is open for all academic disciplines. For academics without a background in natural science, engineering or medicine, a special module «Prerequisites» has been developed. Find out more...

Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging

In an increasingly technological world, understanding the principles and extensive potential of Artificial Intelligence is key to explore its possibilites in the daily clinical practice of Medical Imaging. The main objectives of the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Medical Imaging is to equip Medical Doctors (MDs) with the necessary skills to take a leading role in the AI-driven transformation of medicine. The course program was developed for medical professionals and provides them with the necessary knowledge and skills to translate medical problems to data science problems. By working on an AI project of their own, the participants will know the fundamental concepts of Artificial Intelligence and can thus judge the feasibility and adequacy of proposed AI solutions. Find out more...
