Masters of specialisation
The basic training of medical studies gives access to the diploma of doctor but does not allow to practice within the framework of the INAMI (National Institute of Health and Disability Insurance). The training must therefore be completed by a Master of Specialisation (in general medicine or in another medical specialty) which gives access to a diploma allowing to practice in this framework.
At the end of the 5th year of dental studies, students have a Master's degree in Dental Sciences. However, this does not give them direct access to the professional title of general dentist
Students with a Master's degree in Dental Sciences must complete an additional year of training in the form of a Master's degree in General Dentistry, which includes courses and an internship with an accredited training supervisor.
Students also have the option of taking 2 other specialisation masters (orthodontics or periodontics).
These 3 specialisations are subject to federal quotas. Within this framework, all candidates must follow the admission procedure for dental specialties and present a selection test for the chosen specialisation.
Biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences
t the end of the5th year of studies in pharmaceutical sciences, the graduate students enter the world of work.
However, they have the option of continuing their training with a master's degree, which lasts from one to five years. There is also auniversity certificate of complementary training in pharmaceutical sciences (hospital pharmacy or industrial pharmacy) for pharmacists who have graduated from a foreign country (outside the European Union) and wish to continue or complete specialised training in their country of origin or in a country outside the European Union.
