Academization of the Nursing Professions

As employees in the nursing professions are increasingly required to take on more responsibility and have more medical knowledge, there is a growing desire to make these professions more academic. In Bonn, a course of study in midwifery is currently being developed.

Clinician Scientist & Medical Scientist

A career in science poses a great challenge to physicians. The Medical Faculty therefore offers various funding programs to support training as a Clincian Scientist.

The role of Medical Scientists has also become increasingly important in clinical research in recent years. To meet this need, targeted training opportunities are currently being designed at the faculty.
