Studying medical informatics

Medical computer scientists directly support the work processes of various actors in medical care and research. This ranges from IT solutions for secure storage and transmission of biomedical data to clinical decision support. The users of the developed solutions are people from a wide range of professions and fields of activity.

In recent years, in addition to classical medical informatics, other fields of study have developed in which specific training profiles and expertise are acquired, which are urgently needed in today's job market. Our institute therefore offers medical informatics training in several study programs.

The Goettingen bachelor and master curriculum in Medical Informatics was the first German curriculum to be accredited according to the guidelines of the International Medical Informatics Association in November 2012. The curriculum has been re-accredited for the years 2017 to 2022. This means that graduates of the Goettingen curriculum can easily prove their expertise internationally.
