What it’s about

The World Health Organisation (WHO) describes eHealth as “the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for health.” Differently put: eHealth originates at the interface of IT, business and the health sector. The supply of health services will not be possible without this interface in the future. Tele medicine and mobile services will become the standard and health files and platforms will be used increasingly.

Course structure & majors

In the first two semesters of your studies you will look at various aspects from IT, business and health, of course. Your timetable will include modules such as Medical Documentation, Health Economics and Health Care Systems. You’ll study and work in small groups and receive individual support from our teaching staff. Field trips will lead you to companies from the health sector, hospitals and fairs. And experts from the field will also stop by campus for guest lectures.

In the seventh semester of your studies, things will get even more real: In this project semester you will work on actual projects and problems in companies from the health sector. Or you choose to become an active part of one of the research projects of the Institute for eHealth and Management in Health Care with partners from the region or international partners.

In your fourth semester, you have five months to write your master’s thesis.

Future prospects

You want to continue your studies?

You can pursue your doctorate in cooperation with us if you want to go further into research.

You want to work?

The job market you are qualified for keeps growing. Many of our former students already found a job before they had finished their studies; they met their employers in their project semester or when they wrote their thesis.

You’ll find jibs that require your ability to view the modern health care system as a whole and incorporate the needs and requirements of everyone involved here, for example:

  • Hospitals and public health care providers
  • Statutory health insurance providers
  • Research institutes
  • Health networks
  • software and service providers

How do I apply?

If what you have read so far matches your strengths, interests and your idea of what you would like to study and do – in short, if this sounds like the perfect degree programme for you, you should apply.

Applying for a master’s degree programme is not much different from what you did when you applied for your bachelor’s degree programme. Depending on whether you have acquired your university entrance qualification in Germany or abroad, the application process varies. If you went to school outside Germany, please apply via uni-assist. If your university entrance qualification was issued by a German school, please apply via our Online Service Tool.
