Why to study
The degree programme will provide deeper knowledge of topics relating to molecular medicine and clinical theory such as immunology, oncology, genetics, pharmacology and cell biology. In addition, there are also three laboratory internships, each lasting eight weeks. A Master's thesis will be written within six months
The eighteen-month Masters program in Molecular Medicine at University of Göttingen expands upon the scientific and medical knowledge basis acquired in Bachelor programs and explores in depth the molecular aspects of medicine. Its goal is to train students thoroughly in an area of application of molecular medicine. It should enable students to engage in independent and creative research at the crossroads of medicine and basic science.
Our graduates secure positions in all areas of medical research, laboratory diagnostics, and medical biotechnology, in both the academic and the commercial sectors. Places of employment include: clinics (molecular and biochemical diagnostics, clinical research, etc.); government agencies (criminal investigation offices, public health departments, commercial regulatory authorities, environmental protection agencies, medical associations); places of academic research (universities, Max Planck Institutes and other large research institutions); industrial settings (biomedical technology, production and quality control, basic research and development, publishing, marketing, administration); private laboratories (molecular diagnostics and analysis, environmental protection); and other institutions (ministries, research advancement organizations, technology transfer facilities).

- During the first year, students attend the course “Molecular-pathological aspects of organ systems”, which is designed to heighten their understanding of the interaction between clinical and molecular science. In other obligatory module courses particular aspects of molecular immunology, bacteriology, human genetics and oncology are treated. The final six months are to be devoted to work on a master’s thesis.
- A graduate of the Master’s program in Molecular Medicine should have solid knowledge of the methods of scientific research as well as be able to apply a wide spectrum of molecular-medical methods to provide concrete solutions to scientific problems.
We are not aware of any academic requirements for this programme.
- Applicants must hold a Bachelor's degree, or equivalent degree in molecular medicine, biology, biochemistry or related fields (not medicine).
- Applicants who are not native speakers of English should demonstrate adequate competence of the English language by acceptable results on an internationally recognized test (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, APIEL, CPE). Participation in such a test is recommended but not mandatory, as language skills can also be evaluated during the personal interviews with selected candidates (see Selection and Admission). Proven higher education in English or a reasonably long stay in an English-speaking country is also acceptable.
