Faculty of Biomedical Sciences
The Faculty of Biomedical Sciences at USI was established in 2014, with the purpose to make a contribution towards the solution of an important problem in Switzerland: the dearth of physicians trained in Switzerland. The new Faculty will offer a Master degree in Medicine (3 years) starting in 2020, in close collaboration with ETH Zurich, University of Basel and University of Zurich on the academic side, and with the Ente Ospedaliero Cantonale and private clinics in Ticino for the bedside teaching. The Faculty currently has two affiliated entities, the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) and the Institute of Oncology Research (IOR); both are located in Bellinzona. Both institutes are located in Bellinzona.
