The degree programme qualifies students for a wide range of tasks that arise at the interface between health and IT through a broad content portfolio from medicine, software development, law, process management, web technology, business administration and medical technology.
A special feature of research and teaching in health informatics at HTWG Konstanz is the direct coordination of content with hospitals, clinic chains and medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers. HTWG has already established a wide range of contacts with the health sector, so that experts from the region are available to discuss current topics in health informatics. The advisory board is actively involved in the development of the study programme, so that close interaction with potential employers is guaranteed. In this way, the study programme makes a direct contribution to combating the shortage of skilled workers in the health industry.
