School of Health and Welfare invests in three unique master's programmes

The School of Health and Welfare at Jönköping University is one of the few universities in Sweden that now offers master's programmes in biomedical laboratory science with the specific focus on clinical physiology and laboratory medicine. The third programme to be launched is a master's programme in radiography with a unique profile focusing on diagnostic image review. The programmes are offered fully or partially by distance learning and at half speed, allowing students to combine work and study.

Students who are currently studying to become biomedical analysts or X-ray nurses can now continue their studies at advanced level with the launch of the new master's programmes.

"We are targeting trained biomedical analysts or X-ray nurses who want to invest in further education in their field and/or are interested in postgraduate education," says Sandra Karlsson, programme manager.

Can be combined with work

The programmes are structured as distance learning, which provides greater flexibility for the student. Teaching will be mainly digital, where the student participates in lectures and workshops online. A certain number of days are on campus where the focus is on practical training, laboratory work and examinations.

“The flexibility of our programmes, which are offered at half speed, makes it possible to combine studies with clinical work for an adapted and goal-oriented education. We are looking forward to an exciting autumn and hope for a a lot of interest in the new programmes,” says Sandra.
