Medical Informatics Program

The Medical Informatics program is a university study program in applied informatics with a focus on medicine and healthcare. In order to be able to cover both areas of medicine and informatics, the program was established in 1972 as a joint institution of the Medical Faculty of Heidelberg University and Heilbronn University. As a result, students enjoy the advantages of a rather familiar study program with only about 35 students per semester as well as a university study program in the Heidelberg environment and graduate with a university Bachelor or Master of Science degree.

The program is divided into a Bachelor's program (duration of study 6 semesters) and a consecutive Master's program (duration of study 4 semesters). In the Bachelor's and Master's sections, students can choose between various elective modules, such as "Management of Information Systems in Healthcare" or "Signal and Image Processing" or "Bioinformatics". More detailed information about the program can be found on the page of the Bachelor's program in Medical Informatics or on the page of the Master's program in Medical Informatics. Detailed information on the various courses and other offerings for the Medical Informatics program in Heidelberg can be found here.

Academic advisors for the Medical Informatics program: Niclas Hagen and Vanessa Jörns.
