Faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine was established as one of Kiel University’s four founding faculties alongside the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, the Faculty of Theology and the Faculty of Law in 1665.

Members of the Faculty of Medicine are spread over numerous institutions, pre-clinical institutes and institutes of clinical theory, as well as departments of the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) based at the Campus Kiel. In addition to their research and teaching activities, most faculty members at UKSH are involved in patient care.

Around 2,100 students are registered on medical and dentistry courses at Kiel University. The Faculty of Medicine offers other degree programmes, too, including the Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree Programme in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, as well as Master’s Degree Programmes in Medical Life Sciences and Hospital Management and the International Master of Applied Scientific Dental/Medical Education and Research (iMasder).

Research at the Faculty of Medicine is characterised by diverse academic networks and forward-looking interdisciplinary profile areas. The focus is on a joint research specialism: digital medicine.
