The aim of the Master’s Degree Programme is to train clinical laboratory research professionals who are familiar with the general and specific rules and requirements of clinical laboratory research, and are capable of actively conducting clinical laboratory research in practice. Our aim is to train professionals who are able to conduct, organise and control the clinical trial and evaluation of medical and other therapeutic procedures and diagnostic methods. They possess the knowledge and skills which makes them capable of getting involved in the development, pre-manufacturing, and the implementation of manufacturing technologies in the field of drugs and laboratory diagnostics. They are qualified to manage clinical laboratory work. They are capable of receiving the newest implications of science and pursuing continuous education. They are able to apply their skills in practice in countries and institutions where the relevant laws, directives and protocols allow them. They are prepared to continue their education in doctoral studies.
