Interdisciplinary and preventive
This future-oriented Master Studies started in September 2007 in cooperation with the German Society of Anti-Aging Medicine (GSAAM) – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Prävention und Anti-Aging Medizin e.V. In 2010 we decided to offer the Master program for international students. The study program is organized via EUROMEDICOM, Paris.
Demographic changes involving a growing number of elderly are prompting a dramatic increase in age-related endemic diseases, such as heart failure, arteriosclerosis, arthrosis and osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, malignant cancers, age-related dementia and more. The medicinal treatment of these diseases demands enormous medical and financial resources.
Intensified medical research contributes to earlier and faster diagnoses of these diseases by allowing for the early analysis of individual risk factors such as genetic predisposition, individual life style and living circumstances. Modern medical diagnostic methods enable a detailed analysis of the risks of diseases and the development of them. Simultaneously, newly developed therapies enable us to decelerate aging processes and accompanying signs of deterioration and to activate and strengthen self-healing powers.
In this context, it can be concluded that all medical fields of expertise face a new number of challenges. In addition to therapeutic treatment, the active prevention of physiological aging processes and diseases is needed in the medical treatment of diseases. Moreover, practically all tissue, organs and structures are affected by age-related signs of deterioration. Therefore, effective preventive and anti-aging medicine must be treated as an interdisciplinary task for all medical fields of expertise.
The Master Studies Preventive Medicine conveys current knowledge of preventive medicine, covering all medical areas and their preventive medical measures to emphasize the interdisciplinary task of prevention. Courses will be held by numerous prominent scientists and lecturers from various medical backgrounds, ensuring modern and high-level education. Specific emphasis is placed on the implementation of prevention on modern medical practice, based on the theoretical knowledge discussed.
This Master Studies is specifically aimed at licensed doctors working in private practice or the public health setting who are striving to improve their professional competencies in preventive medicine. This compact course, taught by a highly qualified team of lecturers, meets all requirements to effective advanced training. The extra-occupational concept of this course of studies enables its participants to combine the academic advanced training with their professional occupation. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be awarded the nationally and internationally acknowledged title of “Master of Science in Preventive Medicine”. This course of studies is the first European training towards a qualified academic degree with an international classification in clinical medicine.
