The Department of Medical Informatics introduces itself
The Institute for Medical Informatics is part of the University Hospital Göttingen and the interfaculty Centre for Informatics. The approximately 100 employees are organized in scientific areas:
In addition to the scientific areas, the Medical Data Integration Center of the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG-MeDIC) is established as an independent department at the Institute of Medical Informatics.
As part of the University Medical Center, we are concerned with the concrete support of researchers with modern and future-oriented systems. Because this is the only way to efficiently and effectively meet requirements for Good Scientific Practice and Good Clinical Practice with ever larger and more heterogeneous data volumes and more complex analysis procedures.

Excellent research today is increasingly dependent on large interdisciplinary networks. For this reason, one of the Institute's main focuses is on research into cross-locational collaborative research platforms in accordance with nationally and internationally recognized methods and guidelines for the exchange and use of health data.
Digitisation in the health care system can only succeed if the players involved have the necessary digital skills. For this reason, we are involved at various levels of education, training and further education in order to teach medical informatics in a target group-oriented and practice-oriented manner.
We can only achieve these goals through close local, regional, national and international networking. Therefore, active participation in professional societies and committees as well as a broad spectrum of cooperation partners are of high relevance for us.
