The Medical Biometry (Biostatistics) programme from Heidelberg University provides students with the methodical skills required to plan, conduct and evaluate clinical studies. In addition, they learn how to apply these skills in concrete research projects. 


This degree programme also provides the necessary skills for successful completion of interdisciplinary projects and independent methodical research. The primary focus of the programme is on the application of the methodical knowledge gained in scientific medical research projects, including scientific modelling, the selection of appropriate methods, and problem-oriented interpretation. 

Key Features

The Medical Biometry (Biostatistics) programme from Heidelberg University is designed to prepare students for scientific professions, in accordance with international guidelines for conducting clinical studies. 

All clinical investigations require the participation of a qualified Biometrician, who is responsible for the proper design of experiments as well as for the evaluation and documentation of results. After the director of the study (Principal Investigator), this is the second most important function in a clinical study. Biometricians carry a great deal of responsibility. 

In order to successfully plan and conduct clinical research projects, Biometricians must possess not only methodical knowledge, but also comprehensive medical and cross-disciplinary knowledge, and the ability to combine these two scientific disciplines.
