The degree programme in Medical Education (MME) at University of Heidelberg aims to professionalize the teaching offered as part of medical degree programmes. 


The degree programme in Medical Education (MME) at the University of Heidelberg offers those with responsibilities for planning, organising and ensuring the smooth running of medical degree programmes, the opportunity to familiarise themselves with current theories of education, and cutting-edge teaching methods. 

The degree programme has the following aims:

  • The professionalisation of medical education
  • Improvements in the quality of teaching
  • The qualification of those in management positions, in particular in medical faculties
  • The promotion of exchange across Germany
  • The promotion of high-quality educational research

Occupational Areas

As well as doctors, the degree programme is aimed at those involved in teaching and learning in other fields of healthcare, as well as care and therapy sciences. The qualifications gained via completion of the MME programme are vital for the further development of teaching and learning in the faculties managed by the course participants. 

Programme Structure

  • Students are required to attend eight modules in person. Each module requires that students attend lectures and courses on five days (Mon – Fri), which generally fall within an 18 months period. Subsequent to this, students spend six months completing a Master’s thesis.  
  • Modules are completed at selected universities in German-speaking countries. Module 8 is completed at a different university each year. This university will be located in Germany, or abroad. An important part of the course is the independent planning, creation and evaluation of a training course or workshop at the student’s home faculty. At the end of this project, students complete a comprehensive, written report.
