Professionals participate both in clinical analysis laboratories and research centers

The biomedic acts in the health area conducting scientific researches and/or assisting in diagnoses, aiming the advance of human health and environmental quality.

There are more than 34 fields of work for the biomedical professional that extend from basic and applied scientific research to laboratorial analyses that assist the clinical diagnosis. Biomedical scientists can work in blood banks, public health, aesthetic biomedicine, acupuncture, bromatology, industrial and commercial areas, among other activities. The Institute of Biosciences in Botucatu graduates the biomedical students with emphasis in scientific formation, allowing the student to access scientific research labs.

The graduation course in Biomedical Sciences has a four-year duration and full-time schedule. The course has an extensive curriculum, multi and interdisciplinary, which allows the student to choose among different fields of work. It has appropriate infrastructure for theoretical and practical lectures that take place in the different didactic labs, as well as in the routine and research labs.

A biomedical student that wishes to work in research centers will find the necessary support during the course, through scientific initiation internships in the institute's different labs, along with internationally acknowledged research groups.

Through the Institute of Biosciences' international agreements, the course allows the realization of exchange programs, increasing the possibilities of growing and adding diversity to the students' education.

In addition to the large infrastructure of the Institute of Biosciences, students of the Biomedical Sciences graduation course can rely on other UNESP campuses, like the Medical School, to expand the areas of internship.

The Biomedical Sciences graduation course of the Institute of Biosciences was one of the first in Brazil, making part in the relatively recent history of Biomedicine. Since then, it has been improving its structural curriculum, aiming modernization without losing the quality achieved through the pioneer experience.

If you wish to be a future scientist in the biomedical area or even work in services of clinical diagnosis, the course of Biomedical Sciences will provide the conditions to a professional formation of quality, ethic, and compromised with human and environmental health.

In addition to research and teaching, the biomedical graduate may obtain, according to the CRBM-1, the following habilitations: Clinical pathology (clinical analyses), Biophysics, Parasitology, Microbiology, Immunology, Hematology, Biochemistry, Blood Bank, Virology, Physiology, General Physiology, Human Physiology, Public Health, Radiology, Imagenology, Bromatological Analyses, Food Microbiology, Human Histology, Pathology, Oncotic Cytology, Environmental Analysis, Acupuncture, Genetics, Embryology, Human Reproduction, Molecular Biology, Pharmacology, Psychobiology, Health Information, Pathological Anatomy, Toxicology, Extracorporeal Perfusion, Sanitarist, Audit and Aesthetic Biomedicine.
