The certificate „Medical Data Science“ is a professional study program of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Heidelberg based on a total of 4 modules, which consist of 8 different courses and a project work. Successful graduation of the program will be certified by the University of Heidelberg.
The individual courses are structured into block units, taking place mostly from Thursday to Saturday. The study program takes place over the course of two semesters including the independent project work as a final module. The offered courses can also be booked separately.
The study program will be offered every year. In order to participate, an application has to be send to and approved by the Institute of Medical Biometry and Informatics (IMBI). Admissible are applications from participants who studied medicine, statistics or comparable fields with statistical backgrounds (e.g. Psychology or mathematics).
The total cost for participation of the study program amounts to 3.000€ per semester (in total 6.000€).
According to the most recent status, the study program will start the 16th of October. If restrictions on teaching should continue to apply until then, we have the option of carrying out the courses which are affected by the restrictions as online courses with the lecturers and participants. We have gained a lot of experience in online teaching in the past few weeks so that this can then be implemented without any problems.

Please note that courses offered within the Program are taught in English or German if all participants are familiar with the German language.
