Six students from different disciplines make up the first cohort of the newly designed Master's programme in Health Services Research. In a total of two years, the programme trains young people to become broad-based health services researchers for quality assurance, management and coordination as well as evaluation, implementation and consultation of health policy measures in practice and health policy.
The future health services researchers began their studies in the winter semester of 2021/22 with a mixture of classroom and online courses. Due to the small cohort size, it was possible to smoothly implement the face-to-face appointments in accordance with the university's hygiene regulations. The summer semester 2022 is planned as a pure attendance semester. In addition to the courses, a professional field internship lasting several weeks is also planned for this semester.
Comments on the degree programme:
"I particularly like the interdisciplinary nature of the degree programme. Both teachers and students come from different disciplines and so you get different perspectives on the problems in care."
"I really like the proximity to the lecturers and the Department of Health Services Research, so you get an insight into the research world and always have a contact person. As a student, you are picked up where you are and the different previous knowledge is addressed and built upon."
