The pre-enrollment for the 10th edition of Translational Biomedical Research Master at VHIR is now open

The pre-enrollment period for the 2023-2024 academic year of the Master in Translational Biomedical Research at VHIR will be open from January 13th to September 1st, or until all places are closed.


The pre-enrollment period for the academic year 2023-2024 of the Master in Translational Biomedical Research of the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR) will be open from January 13th to September 1st 2023, or until the available places are closed. This will be the 10th edition of this official master's degree, which has already established itself as one of the leaders in health research in Spain.

More than 350 students interested in acquiring knowledge and skills that will allow them to dedicate themselves to research aimed at finding solutions to people's health problems have already passed through VHIR's Master.

The Master's degree is oriented towards a research career, gives access to the PhD program and offers students the possibility of choosing which area of biomedicine they wish to specialize in. The most distinctive feature of this master's degree is that it is entirely taught in a third level Health Research Institute, by basic researchers, clinicians and physicians who are in constant contact with the hospital's patients. The location of VHIR within the Vall d'Hebron Campus provides the ideal environment to carry out translational biomedical research, always having the patient as the first and last objective.

In 2018, the Master obtained the accreditation of the University Quality Agency (AQU), revalidating the initial verification of the degree and the concession to continue teaching the studies for the next years. The VHIR obtained a rating of "progress towards excellence is achieved" in four of the six quality standards that are evaluated in the monitoring and accreditation processes of the degrees.

In the evaluation report of the center, the External Evaluation Committee of the UQA positively highlighted, as main strengths of the degree: the high-level of the profile of the Master's students, the involvement of the academic coordinators, the excellence of the teaching staff, the proximity between the Research Institute and the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, the mentoring and support systems for students and the good integration of students to the research groups of VHIR, as well as the high level of the Master's Thesis of the students who complete their studies.

What aspects do students value the most?

From the satisfaction surveys carried out among alumni, it is clear that the aspects most valued by the students of the master's degree are the extensive period of external internships and the Master's Thesis, since they allow them to join a research laboratory and, in some cases, to continue their doctoral studies. Most of the students consider that the degree has given them opportunities to access the research and/or professional community and that the training received has allowed them to improve their personal and professional skills. The students' satisfaction with the mentoring system and the accessibility to meet with academic coordinators, professors, academic tutors and internship directors also stands out positively.
