Participant Group

Copyright of Witten/Herdecke UniversityThe ideal candidates are college graduates, who have already collected professional experience in engineering or science, and who are interested in a professional or managerial career in the field of product development with a focus on medicine, such as medical technology. Since the study is supervised individually, it also takes into account the interests of newcomers as well as experienced professionals who wish to transfer from other applications.

Module Course Offerings

  • Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology
  • Medical Simulation Project
  • Radiologic Diagnostics and Medical Visualization

University Certificate

The university certificate “Simulation in Human Medicine” consists of module courses and contains 15 ECTS points total. Every module concludes with an exam.

The certificate includes three modules:

  • Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology
  • Medical Simulation Project
  • Radiologic Diagnostics and Medical Visualization

If interested, you may complete this university certificate through course offerings at other universities, including the module “Finite Element Method” or “Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer,” for example.

The study is divided into in-person and self-study phases. The classroom teaching takes place at the university, usually on Friday and Saturday. Thus, the program is specifically tailored to the needs of those who are working, and it can also be completed with longer travel distances.

Module Study

Every module course offering contains 5 ECTS credits and can also be completed individually. Modules conclude with examinations, and following successful completion of exams certificates are awarded.

The study is divided into in-person and self-study phases. The classroom teaching takes place at the University Witten/Herdecke, usually on Friday and Saturday. Module-specific requirements and schedules are gladly provided upon request.

University Witten/Herdecke

dtukThe first private university in Germany was created in 1983 in Witten. Since then, its students and the development of their curiosity and potential have been at the center. Continuing Humboldt's ideal of education, the university sees itself as an entrepreneurial university, as defined by the unity of research, teaching and practical testing. The original idea of the founders in 1983, was to provide a medical school inside and out: practice-oriented, and this from the very beginning on. The goal: doctors should have plenty of experience with their patients, and this should not be restricted to one specific type of case. Today the new doctors’ licensing regulations are based on the Witten model.
