Current problems in the field of clinical and public health demand innovative proposals that allow better diagnoses and treatments to be offered for the benefit of patients. Translational Biomedicine aims to accelerate the transfer of basic research findings and apply them in the clinical area.
This process requires the training of professionals trained to function as an interface between these 2 areas. This program aims to train these health professionals. The study plan for the Master in Translational Biomedicine is based on the Integral and Flexible Educational Model (MEIF) of the Universidad Veracruzana. This model has an approach of integral professional skills, which allows the development of skills of a professional in the discipline to have a successful job performance, it is characterized by being comprehensive since it promotes intellectual, professional, social, and human training through the training areas of the study plan and is a flexible model in times, spaces and knowledge within the current regulations.
The curriculum of this Master’s program is made up of educational experiences in the basic area, which in this case are intended to provide students with essential knowledge of what Translational Biomedicine is, as well as experiences that will be useful tools in their career. science such as Biostatistics or Management in Translational Research.
The disciplinary area includes experiences in the profile of health sciences such as molecular and cellular biology, human anatomy and physiology, and immunology, which are necessary for the student to know and understand the physiological bases of the organism to later understand the pathophysiology in a state of illness.
The terminal training area, where specific modules are included those addresses pathologies of the gastrointestinal, oncological, infectious, or metabolic system. The purpose of these experiences is that students can, in addition to knowing the pathophysiology of the most prevalent diseases in our country, develop the ability to identify areas of opportunity in the clinical area and be able to propose innovative solutions.
One of the strengths of this postgraduate course is the link that exists with the Salvador Zubirán Institute of Medical Sciences and Nutrition, this link will allow students to rotate through the facilities of said Institute to allow them to learn about the research of other groups that also carry out translational research. and can be nurtured and fed back from new experiences.
