Annotation

Currently and in the future, there exists a large demand for very well qualified teachers in public and private vocational schools in health care. With the upcoming amendments to the occupational admission laws of the therapy and rehabilitation professions as well as the diagnostic-technical health professions it becomes clear that the standard "higher education" for teachers in the health sector will continue to establish itself. However, the number of suitable study places is very limited. The Master's degree in Medical Education at the Faculty of Health at the HMU Health and Medical University Potsdam offers an adequate range of courses that take into account the increasing qualification requirements for healthcare professionals. This is a teacher training course, which is characterised by the clear orientation on the structure of teaching courses and the nationwide recommendations of the Conference of Ministers of Education for teaching courses. The decision about hiring is determined by the country-specific hiring requirements. However, the chances of employment in this area increase significantly due to the targeted orientation towards cross-border standards of teacher training. As a graduate, you can work in both health care schools and vocational schools in the public school system. The Master's degree in Medical Education at the HMU focuses on three areas: Educational Sciences, the Social Sciences and the elective areas of Health Sciences (including Therapy Sciences) or Nursing Sciences. The part-time model of the HMU Health and Medical University Potsdam provides part-time students with the opportunity to gain academic qualifications in addition to work and family.
