DENTAL MEDICINE

DENTAL MEDICINE

Graduate academic studies (integrated study) in Dental Medicine last for six academic years, and the lectures consist of basic and elective courses. The Dental Medicine Study Programme yields the educational profile DOCTOR OF DENTAL MEDICINE – 360 ECTS. During the first semesters, students are expected to gain knowledge in basic natural sciences (which are significant for the Dental Medicine studies) and basic medical sciences, while the lectures during the senior years of study are more oriented towards professional and professional-applied courses in dental medicine. In the 11th and 12th semester, professional practice is conducted through block teaching, necessary for future professional work, as well as preparation for the final thesis.

DENTAL MEDICINE

Study programme objectives

The primary objective of the integrated academic studies of dental medicine is to provide students with necessary skills and theoretical knowledge, as well as with the satisfactory level of practical experience for their future profession. This is realised through the following:

  • primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare and dental medicine level
  • educational and scientific research activity within the fields of dental medicine and complementary disciplines.

Students are offered an opportunity of participating in research projects, where they are introduced to basic methods of scientific research: statistical, epidemiological, molecular, and genetic. In addition, the integrated studies provide students with the knowledge required for the continuation of academic studies at the third cycle (doctoral studies).

The Faculty of Medicine is permanently dedicated to quality assurance policies and improving the competences of dental medicine doctors, in order for them to meet the demands of the profession and the market in general. In this respect, the Faculty feels very much obliged to the society to participate in basic and advanced studies and applied research on new approaches to treating oral cavity diseases, on new drugs and their respective administration, and on new preventive programmes and possible methods of their effective implementation. Continuous education in the aforementioned areas enables constant professional development for dental medicine doctors. These general objectives are intended as guidelines for dental medicine doctors on how to further their professional skills.

Enrolment requirements

The Study Programme of Dental Medicine is open for candidates who graduated from a 4-year secondary school in the Republic of Srpska, the Brcko District, and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as for candidates who graduated from a 4-year secondary school abroad.

In case of the latter, all the necessary documents that serve as a proof of completion of this level of education are subject to a validation process conducted by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Srpska.

Students who have acquired their secondary school qualifications in the Republic of Serbia are exempt from a validation process, according to the provisions of the Agreement on Mutual Recognition and Regulation of Students’ and University Students’ Status Issues (Official Gazette of the Republic of Srpska, Issue 79/05).

Students are enrolled on a competitive basis, in line with their secondary school success and score made at an entrance test, as defined by a public competition announced by the University of Banja Luka. Upon the completion of the competition, a rank list is formed featuring the eligible candidates.

The number of candidates is determined by the Senate of the University, at the proposal of the Staff Council of the Faculty, with the Government of the Republic of Srpska sanctioning the decision.

The public competition for the enrolment on first-cycle academic studies is announced by the University, at the proposal of the Staff Council of the Faculty. The competition is advertised in public media and on the official website of the University.

PHARMACY

PHARMACY

Graduate academic studies (integrated study) in Pharmacy last for five academic years, and the lectures consist of basic and elective courses. The Pharmacy Study Programme yields the educational profile MASTER OF PHARMACY – 300 ECTS. During the first 4 semesters, students are expected to gain knowledge in basic natural sciences (which are significant for the Pharmacy studies) and basic medical sciences, while the lectures during the senior years of study are oriented towards pharmaceutical professional and professional-applied courses, as well as courses in the field of social pharmacy. In the 9th and 10th semester, the preparation of the final thesis and professional student internship are planned, which are necessary for future professional work of students. 

PHARMACY

Study programme objectives

The primary objective of the integrated academic studies of dental medicine is to provide students with necessary skills and theoretical knowledge, as well as with the satisfactory level of practical experience for their future profession. This is realised through the following:

– primary, secondary, and tertiary level of healthcare

 – business activities related to production, market placement, and advertising of drugs and other

    substances used for medical treatments

– regulatory bodies that pass, implement, and supervise laws and bylaws that concern the fields of pharmacy and healthcare

  – educational and scientific research activities in the fields of pharmacy and complementary

     disciplines.

Students are offered an opportunity of participating in research projects, where they are introduced to basic methods of scientific research: statistical, epidemiological, molecular, and genetic. In addition, the integrated studies provide students with the knowledge required for the continuation of academic studies at the third cycle (doctoral studies).

The Faculty of Medicine is permanently dedicated to quality assurance policies and improving the competences of masters of pharmacy, in order for them to meet the demands of the profession and the market in general. In this respect, the Faculty feels very much obliged to the society to participate in basic and advanced studies and applied research on generating new knowledge on drugs and their subsequent administration in therapeutic procedures, with special emphasis on quality assurance of all pharmaceutical dose forms and medical devices and their efficiency as regards a patient’s safety. Continuous education in the aforementioned areas enables constant professional development for masters of pharmacy. These general objectives are intended as guidelines for masters of pharmacy on how to further their professional skills.

 

 

Enrolment requirements

The Study Programme of Pharmacy is open for candidates who graduated from a 4-year secondary school in the Republic of Srpska, the Brcko District, and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as for candidates who graduated from a 4-year secondary school abroad.

In case of the latter, all the necessary documents that serve as a proof of completion of this level of education are subject to a validation process conducted by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Srpska.

MEDICAL LABORATORY DIAGNOSTICS

MEDICAL LABORATORY DIAGNOSTICS

Graduate academic studies in Medical Laboratory Diagnostics last for four academic years. The Medical Laboratory Diagnostics Study Programme yields the educational profile BACHELOR OF MEDICAL LABORATORY DIAGNOSTICS– 240 ECTS. The studies on this programme provide a basis for a better understanding of clinical medical conditions, in addition to the application of laboratory methodology and instrumental techniques. The goals and competencies of certain courses such as immunology, clinical biochemistry, hematology, microbiology, transfusiology, molecular biology, cytology, but also other subjects which are closely related to medical laboratory science, have one common goal, which is prevention, detection, treatment and disease monitoring. 

MEDICAL LABORATORY DIAGNOSTICS

Study programme objectives

The primary objective of multidisciplinary studies of medical laboratory diagnostics is to provide students with necessary knowledge and skills for independent performance in laboratories of primary, secondary, and tertiary health institutions, of health and scientific institutes, of biotechnological and/or pharmaceutical companies, as well as for scientific and clinical research activities.

Enrolment requirements

The Study Programme of Medical Laboratory Diagnostics is open for candidates who graduated from a 4-year secondary school in the Republic of Srpska, the Brcko District, and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as for candidates who graduated from a 4-year secondary school abroad.

In case of the latter, all the necessary documents that serve as a proof of completion of this level of education are subject to a validation process conducted by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Srpska.

Students who have acquired their secondary school qualifications in the Republic of Serbia are exempt from a validation process, according to the provisions of the Agreement on Mutual Recognition and Regulation of Students’ and University Students’ Status Issues (Official Gazette of the Republic of Srpska, Issue 79/05).

Students are enrolled on a competitive basis, in line with their secondary school success and score made at an entrance test, as defined by a public competition announced by the University of Banja Luka. Upon the completion of the competition, a rank list is formed featuring the eligible candidates.
