To the HiGHmed Teaching and Training Programme for Medical Informatics

Our academic and private partners come together under the HiGHmed umbrella, combining their expertise in order to deliver exceptional courses in medical informatics. Based on a common teaching concept, we develop innovative e-learning modules encompassing the broad spectrum of the field. The HiGHmeducation work group consists of individuals at the forefront of their fields. With modules catering to both introductory and advanced prior knowledge, we ensure that the HiGHmed framework is suitable for students of all levels.

Challenges and Goals

The digitalization of the medical field and the development and use of innovative information technologies creates new and exciting activity in various fields, for example in data science. Suitable learning modules need to be implemented, to ensure that the next generation of data analysts is the best qualified to work with and further develop the emerging innovations in medical data management.

In the modern age, it can already be seen that comprehensive training is crucial for data-driven research methods and linking information technology and medicine, particularly regarding the further education of medical professionals and health management personnel.

Digital Skills

The digital space is rapidly developing and digital skill sets are fast becoming core competencies in the modern medical field. Thus, the demand for comprehensive digital skill sets will continue to grow, especially considering the call of the scientific and funding community for an increase in due diligence regarding data management and analysis. HiGHmed has specifically developed the HiGHmeducation programme to address this need for expanded education and training in the health care sector.

Modules and Certificates

Educational success deserves recognition. With our HiGHmeducation certificates, graduates receive official certification, documenting the acquisition of digital competencies in the healthcare sector.

The certificates are jointly awarded with German universities established in the field of medical informatics. This means they are received as highly valued credentials and proof of excellent education and training.

As proof of competence, each certificate option has a specific thematic focus and offers the possibility of combining individual modules. The innovative, sustainable modules are designed for self-directed and flexible learning. A certificate of achievement can also be issued for individually completed modules.

The twelve modules cover various areas - from semantic interoperability to sensor signal processing. For an overview, see the offered modules section.
