Faculty of Health

What defines us

Personality is most important
All under one roof
Social Commitment
Joint research

The Faculty of Health combines the four disciplines “Medicine”, “Dentistry”, “Nursing Science” and “Psychology” under one roof – thus being the only institution of this kind in Germany.

We are convinced that a joint academic environment shared by various disciplines and professions will lead to a more intensive and convincing work on future topics of modern health care. It is our passion to create and foster this academic environment.

Here is more information (in German) on what this faculty is standing for – on what we aim to achieve – on who is responsible – on who co-operates with us – on how we have organized the faculty.

Our degree programmes

Research at the Faculty of Health is interdisciplinary and translational, i.e. it is always geared towards a lively exchange between research laboratory and clinical use. The faculty’s research focus is on Integrative and Personalized Health Care (IPHC). In this context, various projects are implemented in all areas of health research, from basic research to clinical research and health outcomes research.

Schools

Four schools belong to our faculty. They all offer degree programmes and engage in research. More information on the schools is only available in German at the moment.

Students of all Schools have organized themselves in student councils and always find new ways of disseminating their ideas and initiatives in the world. Everybody interested in working on the key issues concerning the future and in participating in the daily challenges of our academic self-administration, as well as everybody wishing to intervene constructively and provide genuine input is welcome here. Learn more about student involvement at Witten/Herdecke University.
