Making Judgements: 

Seminars and Journal Clubs, included in the syllaby of many courses, aim at developing critical Independent judgment

Seminars and Journal Clubs, complementing the programs of many courses, aim at developing critical appraisal of the scientific literature. Laboratory practice and the compilation of the thesis provide important opportunities to improve the students' ability to rationally interpret experimental results. These activities are intended at stimulating the students' ability to formulate independent judgments as regards the planning, conduction and critical evaluation of research projects, using the appropriate instruments; to effectively interact with the technical staff; and to address the social and ethical issues of biological research.

For students enrolled in the Double Degree program, an important added value in terms of independent judgement acquisition will derive from spending a full year in a novel and stimulating cultural environment.

More specifically, MSc graduates in Biomedical Sciences

1. will be able to analyze scientific problems and select the most effective methodological approaches and experimental strategies to address them;

2. will be able to assess the robustness of their own as well as others' experimental results;

3. will be able to assess the cost-benefit ratio and bioethical aspects involved in planning and performing their research projects;

4. will be able to effectively interact with other members of the scientific community.

The acquisition of an adequate level of independent judgment will be verified in public discussions of scientific papers (Journal Club) and of the results of the students' thesis projects.

Communication skills: 

MSc graduates in Biomedical Sciences will have developed an aptitude to the continuing study of the scientific literature and implementation of conceptual and technological advances and will be ready to broaden their perspective on scientific problems by incorporating approaches from different disciplines.

Constant updating will also of help in cost/benefit analysis, and in addressing safety and bioethical themes.

These learning skills will help the MSc graduates, if they wish so, to access higher levels of education (Master or PhD programs) in Italy or abroad, and to develop self-taught programs aimed at continuing professional education.

Learning skills will be evaluated based on the student performance in the exams, and on the ability to master experimental techniques and to address the conceptual hurdles faced during the training period for the experimental thesis.

La prova finale per il conseguimento del titolo e la relativa verifica consistono nella preparazione e discussione di un elaborato, frutto di un lavoro di ricerca sperimentale in ambito biomedico, compiuto sotto la guida di un supervisore presso una struttura universitaria o esterna all'Università purché convenzionata con l'Ateneo.
La relazione dovrà essere redatta in lingua inglese.
I risultati della ricerca verranno esposti e discussi in seduta pubblica di fronte ad una commissione come previsto da Regolamento didattico di Ateneo. Per il Double Degree sarà possibile – qualora la presentazione venga svolta a Bonn – il collegamento in videoconferenza con la commissione locale.
La valutazione si baserà sui seguenti criteri:
- padronanza della problematica e delle metodologie utilizzate
- conoscenza della letteratura scientifica pertinente
- chiarezza espositiva e capacità di sostenere adeguatamente la discussione scientifica
- giudizio del supervisore sull'attività di laboratorio e sulla capacità del candidato di elaborare autonomamente il materiale raccolto ai fini della stesura della tesi
Alla Tesi e Prova finale sono attribuiti 40 cfu (30 cfu per il Double-Degree Programme).
