School VI - Medicine and Health Sciences

The School VI Medicine and Health Sciences is the youngest faculty of the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg. It was founded in 2012 and consists of the Department of Human Medicine, the Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics, the Department of Neurosciences, the Department of Psychology and Health Services Research.

The model course of study in human medicine is the first time in Germany that medical training is taking place across borders. 120 study places are currently available annually on the Oldenburg side at the European Medical School Oldenburg-Groningen.

Characteristics of the school VI are the highly regarded cross-border model course in human medicine - the European Medical School Oldenburg-Groningen (EMS) - as well as the close integration of basic research, clinical research and health care research. It thus offers students and scientists an excellent environment in which to acquire and apply the knowledge and skills necessary for the medicine of the future.

Rebecca Palm appointed

Professor Dr Rebecca Palm has been appointed Professor of Nursing Science at the Department of Health Services Research.

She will also lead the new master's degree programme Advanced Nursing Practice, which will be launched in the winter semester 2024/25. Before joining Oldenburg, she was a professor at Witten/Herdecke University.

After training as a nurse at the German Heart Centre Berlin (DHZB) she studied nursing science at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and at Witten/Herdecke University, where she also completed her doctorate in 2016.

Professor Palm's research activities focus on the care of older adults with a dementia illness and gerontopsychiatric care needs. She is particularly interested in investigating the structural conditions that care facilities should provide to meet the care needs of people with dementia. She is currently also researching the topic of delirium in geriatric care facilities. Palm is a strong proponent of the academisation of nursing education.
