Prog.code: MIM2M 120 c.

General programme information

International Master in Innovative medicine (IMIM) 120 credits
Study plans
The Master's programme in Innovative Medicine (IMIM) is given in collaboration between the three European partner universities: Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, the Netherlands, Heidelberg University, Germany and Uppsala University.
Students in the programme study the first year at the university in Heidelberg, Groningen or Uppsala and then switch for second year to either Uppsala or Groningen.
This means that there can be three different study paths that leads to a Double Degree and a Master's Degree in Medical Sciences at Uppsala University. A compiled list of courses for the three different paths of study is presented below:
 
1. Year 1 Groningen + Year 2 Uppsala (UG/UU),
2. Year 1 Uppsala +Year 2 Groningen (UU/UG), 
3. Year 1 Heidelberg +Year 2 Uppsala (HEI/UU)
