MMS-News September 2019

Staff - Faculty of Biomedical Sciences

Dear Bachelor students in medicine at ETH Zurich, University of Basel and University of Zurich

As you know, in September 2020, some of you will join us at Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) for their Master's degree in medicine. You will have the honor (and the burden) of being the first students in our newborn faculty and this makes us very motivated to create an attractive, modern and innovative curriculum allowing us to realize your dreams. With the MMS-News, an online information service that we plan to publish every quarter, we would like to update you on our "work site" and on the different opportunities that our curriculum already offers during your final bachelor year.

Please find below updated information on important administrative, organizational and structural aspects of the master: further information will follow in the next issues.



Enrollment will be possible starting from 15.11.2019 and will close on 15.2.2020.
