The safe and innovative use of medical technology calls for healthcare professionals with specific expertise. Professionals with a solid scientific, medical and engineering background. You can become just such an expert in a new programme that integrates the medical and technical domain to create a single new expert domain: Technical Medicine. The Master’s programme in Technical Medicine provides the academic training for the new healthcare professional: the technical physician. A technical physician is a true scientist-practitioner who has the medical knowledge and skills, professional acumen and problem-solving abilities to design improved, safe technological diagnostic strategies or therapies for specific patient problems, and who is able to apply these in direct patient care. Examples include advising treatment for tumours situated in difficult locations, integrating automated evaluation of EEG signals and improving decision support systems for the diagnosis and treatment of a patient’s impaired ventilation. This interdisciplinary programme consists of a three-year Bachelor’s and a three-year Master’s degree.
