Digital Public Health - 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.
