The aim of the model course in Human Medicine, a joint initiative between the University of Oldenburg and the University of Groningen, is to explore new and cross-border approaches to medical training. From day one, students are taught not only the scientific fundamentals of the discipline but they also follow clinical modules. In addition, they follow modules that are specifically designed to help them improve their communication skills. They gain insights into and first-hand experience of medical practice e.g. by completing internships at general practitioners’ practices from the beginning of their studies. Students also have the option of spending at least one year in Groningen, which gives them the opportunity to learn about another European healthcare system.
Master's degree programme in Molecular Biomedicine
The Master’s degree programme in Molecular Biomedicine, which is taught in English, connects the molecular life sciences with medicine by examining molecular and cellular aspects of biology with an emphasis on medical topics and questions. The research-oriented programme offers students a broad education and instruction in various methods and concepts, enabling them to independently carry out basic and clinical research in the field of molecular biomedicine.
The aim of the Master’s degree programme in Neuroscience, which is taught in English, is to offer an in-depth, research-oriented and internationally oriented training programme in neuroscience. This degree programme focuses on neurosensory science, which ties in with existing research collaborations and graduate programmes at the University of Oldenburg. These networks combine fundamental research in biology with clinical and applied research into sensory processes.
Master’s degree programme in Neurocognitive Psychology
The Master’s degree programme in Neurocognitive Psychology, which is taught in English, covers the key areas of psychology and offers an in-depth training programme in cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology. This degree programme is primarily research-oriented and gives students the opportunity to learn about the very latest techniques and issues in these fields. Students gain practical experience through various applied modules as well as by completing internships.
Applicants who are interested in doing a PhD but do not wish to do so as part of one of the structured programmes should contact the heads of theindividual research groupsand inquire about the possibility of doing an individual doctoral programme. You can find out more about the individual research groups on the department websites.
