Lecturers’ comments

“Biochemistry is the chemistry of life, as chemical molecules produced in our body can interact and through biochemical processes, can generate the physiological status, feelings, emotions and the essence of who we are as human beings. That’s why it’s such a fascinating subject.”

Lecturer for Biochemistry
Assoc. Prof. Amelia Tero-Vescan, PhD

“Only due to the history of anatomy as a subject of science did we as human beings start to understand the functions of our different organs and other structures of our bodies. By having a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental functions of these structures, we are capable of analyze and dissect complex medical interrelations within our bodies.”

Lecturer for Anatomy
Assoc. Prof. Mircea-Gabriel Muresan, MD, PhD

“Medical psychology represents a branch of psychology that deals with the application of psychological principles in medical practice. It is particularly concerned with the way in which biological, psychological and social factors interact and thereby influence the health of an individual. This dynamic interaction makes medical psychology a crucial element in understanding physical symptoms and recovery.”

“Medical Informatics is designed to provide future doctors with the tools they need to be successful in a constantly changing and evolving environment. With practical exercises in areas such as natural language processing, business intelligence, artificial intelligence or medical imaging applications, students are familiarized with an information technology perspective on current topics of everyday medical research and clinical practice.”

“I am very impressed with UMFST-UMCH. The interaction between the Hamburg campus and the teaching hospitals provides students with excellent preparation for their future work as medical professionals. The study concept, which is based on particularly intensive support for individual students by the respective teaching staff, in combination with the ultra-modern physical and digital infrastructure of the campus as well as the university as such, is utterly forward-looking. I also particularly welcome the symbiosis of research and teaching that exists here. In addition, it is a great advantage for students to study in English, the international language of science, while at the same time gaining experience in German-speaking teaching hospitals. For me – as head physician of the Center for Internal Medicine at the teaching hospital EVK Mettmann – it is great to have the certainty that the future physicians of UMFST-UMCH will receive an all-round excellent education.”
