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!
