Structure of the Master’s Programme in Medical Informatics

The Master's Programme in Medical Informatics takes a total of four semesters and 80semester hours.

A majority of these hours consists of mandatory modules and core topic combinations. In addition, the students choose electives to deepen their knowledge and finally they dedicate themselves to their thesis, which also needs to be defended orally.

In the core subject combinations, students can complete projects instead of the mandatory courses required by the curriculum. The coordinator for the corresponding core subject combination will then act as advisor for the project.
