Digital Medical Technology - Digital Biomedical and Health Sciences
The degree program
This innovative degree program for health professions of the future, which is unique in Germany, imparts a broad knowledge from the fields of medicine, natural sciences, computer science as well as social and health sciences. It aims at a new occupational profile in the health care professions, in which academic professionals are trained in an interdisciplinary setting with a focus on the challenges and opportunities of digitalization. The degree program makes it possible to focus on the natural sciences, engineering or social sciences and thus offers a wide range of medically related training opportunities. Prospective students should be communicative and open-minded, as well as eager to learn and work in an interdisciplinary setting. Approximately 60 percent of the course content is the same regardless of the chosen specialization and promotes central knowledge and skills in the health system. With the continuation of the studies, the common teaching content decreases and specialization towards the selected focus increases. Changing the area of special focus is possible.
Areas of special focus
The specialization in the field of “Digital Medical Technology" provides students with basic knowledge in mathematics, computer science and IT systems in the first semesters. In the following years of study, the focus is on competences in medical technology, digital medical image processing, hospital information systems and telematic approaches in the context of modern forms of care. Internships in clinics and in clinical IT provide insights into the practice of various professional fields at the interface between technology and medicine.
Graduates develop digital, technical scientific and structural innovations that support the interaction between doctor and patient efficiently and in line with their needs. You will be able to work in various exciting professional fields, both constantly growing traditional ones and those emerging in future. Examples are the manufacture of medical devices, the establishment of complex administrative systems in the health sector, companies in research and science, and organizations and institutions of the health system.
Under certain conditions, it is also possible to take up the course of study with a technical college entrance qualification (Fachhochschulreife). You can find more information here
