The Brandenburg Medical School Theodor Fontane (MHB) is a state-recognized university, a non-profit institution under municipal sponsorship. It stands for innovative teaching concepts and the integration of research, student education and patient care. With three university hospitals and currently more than 30 cooperating clinics and around 200 teaching practices we pool science-based expertise and practice-oriented know-how to educate a new generation of physicians and psychologists.
The Brandenburg Medical School (MHB) sees its mission and its unique function in giving a specific answer to the changed demands of society on the health care system in general, and the training of physicians, dentists, psychotherapists, clinical psychologists and other health professionals in particular.
Our objective and claim is to establish a modern format of education which is close to practice, liberal and holistic, and meets the requirements of professional life. We see the qualification and training of physicians and psychotherapists with subject-specific expertise, competence and social commitment as an active contribution to solving current problems and providing the best possible patient care for the region and the country.
Against the background of our founding mission and objectives, we intend to be a university which takes on future challenges with confidence and courage, breaks new ground in teaching and research, and contributes to the solution of pressing social issues. A university where students enjoy enough space to unfold their talents and develop their personalities. A university which promotes and challenges the individual potential of each member.
A university which consistently proves its learning and relational capacities and innovative powers. A university where it is fun to study, teach, research and work. And finally: a university with an institutional non-profit set-up and a special shareholder structure that includes municipalities, hospitals and social welfare organizations, which strives to contribute to patient care, future health and social change – for the region and the country.
