Zwischen Forschung und Praxis – das Gesundheitssystem von morgen schon heute mitgestalten

 

Die Vergabe von Antibiotika ist in den letzten Jahren stark gestiegen, obwohl die Bedenken gegenüber einer übermäßigen Antibiotikavergabe bekannt sind. Aber warum kann eine Antibiotikavergabe bedenklich sein? Und wie kann einer problematischen Antibiotikavergabe entgegengewirkt werden?  ...mehr

Tobias Krick: "Wer einen Master sucht, bei dem es nicht nur darum geht so viel wie möglich auswendig zu lernen, sondern die gelernten Inhalte auch nachhaltig zu verstehen und in der Praxis anwenden zu können, der/die ist hier richtig."

Saskia Konusch: "Ich kann jetzt alles - einen Fragebogen erstellen, Interviews führen, Ergebnisse präsentieren, im Team arbeiten als auch Eigenverantwortung übernehmem, ein strukturiertes Projekt- und Zeitmanagement einhalten, einen Businessplan erstellen."

Daniel Gand: "Zentrales Element des Masterstudiums war [...] das eigene Forschungsprojekt [...]. Dadurch dass jedes Projekt einen Praxispartner hatte, konnte man selbst erleben was es bedeutet, wenn man 'Theorie trifft Praxis' spricht."

Imke Seifert: "Jeder, der an Projektarbeit, aber auch Teamarbeit interessiert ist und sich einen hohen Praxisbezug im Studium wünscht, ist hier genau richtig."

How to make the healthcare system needs-driven? What concepts exist for efficient healthcare provision? How can it be ensured that public health measures decrease rather than increase health inequality? How can healthcare and nursing be financed in future?

Program aims

The aim is to train future experts in the field of Public Health who are capable of independently identifying, analyzing and finding solutions to the complex problems facing the areas of Healthcare Provision, Economics, and Management. Graduates from the program will in various functions contribute towards making the system of healthcare provision more effective, more efficient, and more equitable. Furthermore, the program offers students the best possible conditions for personal and professional advancement as well as for developing individual academic specialties.

Didactical concept

The master’s program is strongly oriented to research-based learning. Research-based learning pursues an approach that enables students to shape their studies in a self-organized research process. Theories and methods are not dealt with in isolation, but taught at the same time. An important element of research-based learning in the study program is a three-semester research project carried out in collaboration with partners in the healthcare sector.

Moreover, research-based learning reaches beyond the mere acquisition of expert knowledge, fostering generic competences like creativity, self-assurance, and the ability to reach informed decisions.

A large part of studies are taken up in teamwork. Students learn together with and from each other, with expert support from the program’s teaching faculty.

The implementation of research-based learning in the study program is supported in the frame of the FLexeBel project.

For further information concerning research-based learning we suggest you to read the following article.

Program Description

Students learn the central methods and theories in the areas of healthcare provision, health economics and healthcare management. This includes, for instance, statistical and epidemiological methods as well as methods for critical evaluation of their studies. In addition, together with their fellow students in the Faculty’s three other masters’ programs in Public Health, they analyze central concepts of Public Health on national as well as global levels. They analyze current issues surrounding the provision of healthcare and develop solutions based on national and international research findings.
