Master, PhD and Postdoctorate Degrees


The Institute of Medical Research (IPEM) offers numerous opportunities for postdoctoral scholars to develop an academic and professional training program.  The department was created in 1994 as a continuing education program in surgical principles and IPEM has become a center of excellence in medical research.  For over 22 years, more than 200 theses have been developed, in which 184 of them correspond to master degrees and 38 of them are postdoctorate dissertations.
