Advanced Practice in Healthcare

The dual Master's Advanced Practice in Healthcare study course is designed to prepare you for the challenges which are faced in healthcare professions. The study course places particular emphasis on interprofessional collaboration.

The study course addresses different focal points in the healthcare sector by implementing three fields of study:

  • The Management & Leadership in Healthcare study course is aligned to specialist workers and executive managers who would like to assume tasks in the management of healthcare institutions.
  • The Health Professional Education study course concentrates on specialist workers and executive managers in the field of education and teaching in healthcare and nursing care.
  • The Advanced Clinical Practice study course is intended to deal with the content-related design and structural co-design in clinical care.

Absolving the Master's degree enables you to assume demanding specialist duties and executive management tasks in health professions.
