“Precision Medicine” is the term that describes the most current perspective on making diagnosis of disease or illness, treatment therapies, and prevention more personalized, predictive, proactive, and precise, with a great emphasis on diseases that are life-threatening.

Precision medicine focus on targeted and personalized care derives from using big data from patients after large-scale analyses. It utilizes a multiparametric approach, which integrates data from a range of different sources, and takes into account individual differences in genes, environments and lifestyles. The overall goal is to allow physicians to select treatments that are most likely to help the individual patient by implementing precise for the person therapies.

Hence the ultimate goal of this post-graduate program “Masters in Precision Medicine and Novel Therapies” is to provide, update and transfer relevant knowledge, as well as to further to further develop the skills of professionals, who are active mainly in the field of health, diagnostics and the pharmaceutical industry.  More specifically, the Program is designed such as that trainees will acquire specific scientific and analytical skills in collecting and evaluating laboratory data from disease models and/or patients, in the planning of the ideal treatment in the context of Precision Medicine, in scientific writing and presentation, in experimental/clinical design, as well as in raising awareness on current and important issues in the field of health, such as the implementation of new treatments and the clinical utility of biochemical and genetic analyses in the decisions of personalized pharmacotherapy.

The curriculum “Masters in Precision Medicine and New Therapies” is organized as a set of core modules, focused on the most important aspects of Precision Medicine.  It is a highly competitive program, which requires interdisciplinary knowledge at least at a theoretical level. It also includes contemporary cutting-edge topics in the life sciences and medicine, while concomitantly addresses the new challenges in the fields of diagnostics, genetic analyses and clinical trials.

English competency (level C1) is also proven with certificates of other institutions (not limited to universities) of an equivalent level, irrespective of their legal form, provided they are certified or recognized by the competent authority of the country concerned for conducting examinations and issuing certificates of proficiency in English at the appropriate level. These certificates must be accompanied by a proof document from the issuing body that both the issuing body and the language certificate competency are certified by the competent national authority and that the certification also concerns the evaluation of basic communication skills (written language production, oral language production, written language comprehension and oral language comprehension).

If there is no certification or recognition body in the country concerned, a certificate from the relevant Ministry or Embassy of the country in Greece is required, confirming that the certificates issued by the above bodies to third parties for whom English is not a native language are accepted in public services of that country as valid evidence of English at the appropriate level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The competent regulatory authority for Great Britain is the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).

General notes:

  • Advanced level foreign language certificates also prove knowledge of a lower (required) level of the foreign language.
  • Foreign Language Teaching Certification does not prove the competence in a foreign language. In order to prove their competence in the foreign language, candidates who hold the relevant certification must provide the foreign language certificates as provided for in this Annex where applicable
  • All foreign language degrees must be accompanied by their official translation into the Greek language, except the above English language proficiency certificates, which are accepted without requiring any translation and validation.

The Master’s Study Program (MSc) entitled: “Precision Medicine and Novel Therapies” (PRETH) is structured in two (2) academic years, which include:

− five (5) Modules,

− three (3) Laboratory Modules,

− Laboratory Dissertation (EDi) or Dissertation based on research scientific literature (Di).

The total number of European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) required to obtain the Master’s Degree is 120 ECTS.

The MSc “Precision Medicine and New Therapies” follows two distinct structures, which differ in the 2nd year of studies:

(1) The 1st structure includes a Research Dissertation (RDi), which is prepared in the 4th semester of studies and presupposes the selection of the specific laboratory module, PRETH61, of the 3rd semester.

(2) The 2nd structure includes preparation of a Master’s Dissertation based on research scientific literature (Di) in the 4th semester of studies.

Α’ Structure with Research Dissertation (RDi)²: The 3rd semester’s Laboratory Module (PRETH61 LM) is a prerequisite for the 4th semester’s RDi. It is attended in hands-on laboratory practice of BRFAA and partner institutions.

 

Guidelines for Selection of Modules/Laboratory Modules

Students may choose one (1) to two (2) modules per semester (up to 30 ECTS).

Modules must be selected from the Masters’ curriculum by following the semesters’ structure.

For example, in the 1st semester, the first module to choose is PRETH50 or both PRETH50 and PRETH51 modules of the semester.

During the declaration process of modules, the 1st semesters’ modules must be completed before modules of the second semester are selected. The same applies for every next semester.

To conduct a Research Dissertation (RDi) the Laboratory Module PRETH61 of the third semester is a pre-requisite. To conduct a Dissertation based on research scientific literature (Di) students should enroll to the (B’) structure of the 2nd year.

Enrollment to the (Laboratory) Dissertation (RDi/Di) presupposes the successful attendance of the six (6) modules of the first three semesters.

To support orally the RDi/Di presupposes the successful completion of all modules and Laboratory modules of the Study Program.

The minimum duration of studies of the Interinstitutional Master’s Program PRETH is four (4) academic semesters. For the successful completion of PRETH in four (4) academic semesters, all required modules must be completed.

In order to obtain the MSc title, it is mandatory to successfully complete:

(a.) five (5) modules and two (2) laboratory modules, as well as

(b.) the successful support of the Master’s dissertation (Research RDi or Di).

  1. Kameas Achilles, Dean of the Autonomous School of Science and Technology (S.S.T.), H.O.U.
  2. Maria Hadjinikolaou, Professor, S.S.T., H.O.U.
  3. Sgourou Argyro, Assistant Professor, S.S.T., H.O.U.
  4. Thanos Dimitris, Professor-Investigator, President of the Scientific Board BRFAA
  5. Mangoura Dimitra, Professor-Investigator, Vice Director of Basic Research Center BRFAA

Student tuition fees for the Postgraduate Programme:  

550€ per Module, 650€ for each one of the PRETH52 (LM) and PRETH63 (LM), 800€ for the PRETH61 (LM), 650€ for each one of the PRETH RDi and PRETH Di.

The total financial cost for the students who choose A’ Structure, meaning 5 Modules, PRETH52 (LM), PRETH61 (LM) και PRETH RDi, is: 4.850€.

The total financial cost for the students who choose Β’ Structure, meaning 5 Modules, PRETH52 (LM), PRETH63 (LM) και PRETH Di, is: 4.700€.
