Main Focus "Biomedical Technology"
In rural areas, more than elsewhere, health system professionals face the challenge of compensating infrastructural weaknesses in such a way, that quality and access to healthcare are equivalent to urban areas. In this context, the particular problem areas are the long journeys to care centers with good diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and the lack of general practitioners in the countryside.
Through the study of biomedical technology, students acquire further knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics, which enable them to answer medical-biological questions. In addition, these competences form the basis for the third semester of additional interfaces to bioinformatics, biochemistry and microbiology and virology. In response to the previously described, increasingly difficult situation of health care in rural areas, students with a focus on biomedical technology are also being trained in bioanalytics and biomedical technology. This provides them with the tools to design mobile laboratories and analyzers and to align them to the supply needs. In the elective subject area Biomedicine students can choose in the fifth semester, another additional professional aspect to sharpen their education professionally.
The bachelor thesis is deliberately designed in a thematically interdisciplinary way, can be worked on in collaboration with each of the two other main subjects.
