Bachelor in Medicine
The Bachelor of Medicine is a 3-year programme of basic training, enabling students upon graduation to continue with the Master of Medicine (three years of medical training).
USI allows 15 students to enrol in the Bachelor courses, due to a joint agreement with University of Basel (UNIBAS), according to which the students are matriculated at USI but will attend their Bachelor curriculum entirely at UNIBAS. During that time, they hold the status of host-students at UNIBAS, fully accepted and with equal access, study programme, exams, etc. as regular students enrolled at UNIBAS.
The Bachelor of Medicine at UNIBAS is carried out in German.
After the Bachelor
For the Master of Medicine, the students enrolled at USI have a guaranteed admission at USI once their Bachelor is successfully completed. Hence, it is not possible to carry on with the Master of Medicine at UNIBAS.
