Qualification Profiles


Courses in the qualification profiles are first offered starting in the second component of the Aachen "Modellstudiengang Medizin" (Model degree program of medicine). Certification in an individual qualification profile represents intensive work with a special topic. This can be the cornerstone for futher scientific work and open up the way to doctoral studies in this field.

Furthermore, within their qualification profiles, students can get a glance at the Faculty of Medicine's research fields: medicine and technology, molecular pathogenesis, and clinical neurosciences. The qualification profiles offe an important opportunity in university medical studies to learn how to scientifically work and to learn based on one's own decisions. This should be sustainably supported, by keeping space open in the traditionally regimental medicine curriculum.
