The EMJMD-MARBLE represents a step-change in the provision of Master Degree programmes in BLS in Europe and will be a unique educational offering in this domain globally. Students enrolling on this programme will have a unique educational experience of a truly international nature. In their first year they will spend time in each of the four partner countries as well as engaging in continuous E-learning provided by the all partners as a whole. In the second year students will focus on more specialist topics, namely by having a specialist clinical practice and by carrying out a specialised research project leading to a Master’s thesis. This will be carried out in a European country of their choice or in collaboration with one of the Associated Partners (AP) who represent potential employers in key sectors such as industry, research centres, the health sector, academia and professional agencies. The expertise, skills, competence and connections that the students obtain during this programme will help to equip them to meet the current and future needs of the labour market (e.g. as . Graduates of this programme will be competent to take on roles as diagnostic partners in healthcare.
The primary aim of the EMJMD-MARBLE is to educate and train biomedical laboratory scientists (BLs) to the highest national and international standards and equip them to meet the current and emerging professional requirements of this key diagnostic sector as researchers, advocates, leaders and diagnostic partners. A secondary aim is to increase the European dimension of BLS and help to consolidate a unified identity for the profession, thereby harmonizing and supporting specialist practice across the European area. Taken together these aims will facilitate the increase in students’ specialist knowledge, promote mobility of graduates and provide high quality post-graduate Biomedical Laboratory Scientists (BLs) for the European and international markets.
