Biomedical Educational Section – BUS

Biomedicinska Utbildningssektionen

The Biomedical Educational Section – BUS is the section at Medicinska Föreningen for students enrolled in the following programmes at Karolinska Institutet:

  • Bachelor’s Programme in Biomedicine
  • Master’s Programme in Biomedicine
  • Master’s Programme in Nutrition Science
  • Master’s Programme in Toxicology
  • Master’s Programme in Molecular Techniques in Life Science

The section’s main focus is to gather students and discuss matters concerning the education as well as the educational development in the programmes. The student’s interest towards KI in general is also represented through representation in decision-making committees across university departments and management. The section is also involved in organizing events and social activities for the students during the year. Some of our recent events range between dinners and events on campus, weekends at Solvik to sending a delegation to compete in the national brännboll tournament, Bio-bollen, and others.

Become a student representative!

As a student representative in BUS you have the unique opportunity to participate in steering your education and bring forward any ideas you might have about the social and academic developments for the programs under the BUS umbrella. The elections take place annually during October, but if you would like to become active at any time during the year – you are welcomed to message us!
