Digital Medical Technology - Digital Biomedical and Health Sciences
The Study Program
This innovative and in Germany unique study program for health professions of the future 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 field of health care professions, in which academic specialists are trained interdisciplinarily with a focus on the challenges and opportunities of digitization. The course of studies makes it possible to focus on the natural, engineering or social sciences and thus offers a wide range of medical-related training opportunities. Prospective students should be communicative and open, as well as eager to learn and work in an interdisciplinary way. Approximately 60 percent of the course content uniform, regardless of the chosen focus and promote central knowledge and skills in the healthcare system. As the studies continue, the joint teaching content decreases and specialization in the direction of the selected focus increases.
Major Focal Points
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 insight into the practice of various occupational fields at the interface between technology and medicine.
Graduates develop digital, technical, scientific and structural innovations that support, efficiently and according to need, the interaction between doctor and patient. You will be able to work in various, exciting occupational fields, both constantly growing classical ones,as well as those, that emerge in future. For example, in the manufacture of medical devices, in the establishment of complex administrative systems in the health sector, in companies in research and science, in organisations and institutions of the health system.
The study program can only be studied in the study model with two core subjects. The first core subject is always Digital Biomedical and Health Sciences, the second core subject can be chosen - in this case the major is Digital Medical Technology.
Admitted applicants select their major with binding acceptance at Hochschulstart.de and then register for both core subjects. A later change of focus is possible under certain conditions.
Subject to the adoption of the Fachprüfungsordnung, an application with Fachhochschulreife is permissible. International students please apply via STARTING, not via Hochschulstart.
Other Focal Points
In addition to the major in Digital Medical Technology, there is also the focus on Digital Public Health und Biomedical Technology.
