The study programme

The degree programme enables you to develop innovative, interdisciplinary and multi-professional solutions for the challenges in the field - tailored to the needs of the patients.

The Applied Health Sciences master degree programme is designed to enable non-medicine graduates, in particular those with degrees in therapy and midwifery, to obtain additional academic qualifications. This puts graduates in a position to tackle the challenges faced by the health service in view of demographic and technological changes in an aging society, and the related demands placed on the health service.

The use of new digital technologies, the integration of health-related innovations and an interdisciplinary environment represent both a challenge and an opportunity for future healthcare provision. Advances in non-physician professions in line with research performed by and for practitioners, and the evidence generated as a result, are significant in this context.

Focus areas

  • Transdisciplinarity and interdisciplinarity: this core element focuses on developing skills applicable in various healthcare fields, including participative case management, best practice models, primary health care, and geriatric and children’s health. Wide-ranging, interdisciplinary education forms the basis of the degree programme.  
  • Science and research: developing and enhancing methods-based and research-design skills is the focal point of this core element. 
  • Innovation and health: here the emphasis is on developing capabilities related to digitalisation, innovation and the implementation of new technologies in various health-system settings. Students also acquire knowledge of telehealth, data security and the latest trends in digital healthcare.
