The speciality of the master program

The masters program “Cardiovascular Science” is a consecutive, full-time study program in English, which has the intention to train international students in all aspects of cardiovascular science.

This will be achieved by its modular structure which offers students with a background in natural sciences a broad education, not only in the relevant basics but also in modern clinical aspects which are essential for understanding translational research questions. A key feature of this program lies in its high proportion of individual practical training, allowing students to gain experimental experiences and insights in different research questions.

After finishing their Masters thesis, the graduates will be highly qualified for their future careers in the field of cardiovascular sciences in academia and industry, but also in familiar occupational fields. For applicants holding a MBBS, MD etc. please note: this is a scientific masters programm and it´s not equivalent to a Specialist medical training!

Handling corona at the UMG and GAU

The Georg-August University has developed a step-by-step plan to simplify communication on the infection situation. It provides an overview of the regulations made by the crisis management team (Krisenstab) and the Presidential Board with regard to the generally applicable AHA rules, as well as the handling of studies, teaching and research. In assessing the infection situation, the crisis management team takes several factors into account, such as local and regional incidence values, the development of infection figures at the university, state and national developments, and the assessment of the city and health authorities. The graduated plan consists of 3 stages:                                                                                                                                            

  • Stage 1 (yellow): stable low incidence of infection
  • Stage 2 (orange):Increased incidence of infection
  • Stage 3 (red): High incidence of infection

The step-by-step plan is reviewed every 14 days and weekly in case of acute needs.
The University of Göttingen continues to aim to conduct the semester in the best possible way in the interest of study, teaching and research, while at the same time providing protection against infection for students and staff.

Further information for international students on TRAVEL AND ENTRY INFORMATION, COMING TO GÖTTINGEN can be found in the download area below.

The currently valid phased plan can be found on the University's website.

Information on the use of corona at the University Medical Center Göttingen can be found on the UMG website. Students and staff can access the clinic building via the main entrance with a student/staff card.
