Be in Precision Medicine is an Erasmus Mundus European Programme selected and financed by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA). BeInPM is a one-year, 60 ECTS credits, Master degree entirely taught in English. It is open to well-trained students who have completed a Bachelor degree or equivalent degree (240 ECTS), in a relevant field, and with a good command of the English language.
Students attend each of the two semesters at different Partner Universities. Students start the BeInPM programme with a very intensive Summer School, and finish it with a more entertaining one. Both are organised at the European Scientific Institute at Archamps (France, www.esi-archamps.eu). Upon completion, successful students will be awarded a prestigious Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD).
The BeInPM programme is managed by 5 governance bodies:
