Faculty of Health Sciences
Emanating from the “Brandenburg Health Campus” initiative, the Faculty of Health Sciences was established as a joint faculty of the three member universities in June 2018. For the MHB this means the addition of a second faculty to the existing medical school, and of a new seventh faculty for both the University of Potsdam and the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg.
A total of 16 new professorships will be advertised over the coming months, and are scheduled to be filled with appointments from the three member universities.
The primary aim of the Faculty of Health Sciences is to strengthen collaboration between researchers at and outside universities and thus to develop long-term concepts for improved healthcare provision in Brandenburg, specifically via intensified research efforts in the field of health sciences.
Another objective is the training of health science professionals. New and innovative programmes are currently in preparation to that end.
