Master Programmes

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!

International Master in Innovative Medicine

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.

Health Economics

We are sorry to announce that the Master's program „Health Economics“ (MScHE) is being phased out in the winter semester 2018/19. Admission is no longer possible.
Unfortunately, we were not able until today to acquire a sufficiently large number of students, which would allow us to come even close to a cost-coverage. Consequently, we decided to close the program with the beginning of the winter term 2018/19 and not to accept any new students.
We will of course offer all students, which are already enrolled, to attend all the lectures and exams, which are necessary for them to complete their studies.

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).
