Our faculty offers four interdisciplinary study courses leading to a Master of Science (MSc) degree. All are internationally-oriented condensed programmes. Some are aimed at graduate students with a first degree in a related field, while others offer the possibility of advanced professional development.
The accredited programmes are taught in English and have a modular structure and credit point system (based on the European Credit Transfer System – or ECTS). As a result, the programmes are compatible within the European framework for higher education and internationally recognized. Depending on the programme, full time and/or part time students are accepted.
International Master in Innovative Medicine
Established in 2016, the Medical Faculty Mannheim offers an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree-programme in Innovative Medicine. Applications for the class of 2018 until 14. Januar 2018!
Translational Medical Research
The focus of the MSc in Translational Medical Research is the translation of knowledge, mechanisms, and techniques of basic molecular and cellular research into new approaches for diagnosis and treatment of disease as well as the translation of clinical observations back to the laboratory, inspiring basic research questions. In this manner, the programme builds upon the interface between experimental basic science, translational research methods and models, and clinical medicine. The programme systemically provides students (who must have a medical or bioscience background) with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in the frontier of translational medical research in an interdisciplinary team. Reflecting the research foci of our Faculty, students can choose to specialize in molecular oncology, neurobiology or vascular medicine with the option to move into a PhD degree programme.
The MSc in Health Economics is a advanced one-year programme that requires specific experience on the job with a minimum of one year. The programme is offering first class training in the theoretical foundations and practical applications of health economic methods for decision-making and policy development in health and health care within the context of the ethical principles of society. The overall goal is to equip students with state of the art tools to participate in the frontier of health economic research and practice. An overview of closely related subjects, such as public health, health care policy and health care management, are included to provide a broad perspective and prepare graduates to work in interdisciplinary teams and setting.
Medical Physics with Distinction in Radiotherapy and Biomedical Optics
The MSc in Medical Physics started in 2006 as a one-year course. Each year students with a background in medicine, physics, informatics, engineering or biosciences enter this interdisciplinary programme to specialize in medical physics, with a focus on either radiotherapy or biomedical optics. The programme’s international orientation is strongly supported through continuous cooperation with the University College London (UK), Harvard Medical School (USA), Duke University Medical Centre (USA), Johns Hopkins University (USA) and Jiao Tong University Shanghai (China).
The MSc Biomedical Engineering is a two-year programme. Aimed at bachelor graduates in physics, mathematics, life sciences, engineering and informatics, It expands and deepens the Medical Physics themes, and offers the possibility to take selected courses at two internationally renowned Universities.
