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.
