Musculoskeletal Sciences

The interdisciplinary program was initiated by the Departments of Anatomy, of Plastic Surgery, Orthopaedics and Traumatology.

The main focus of the program is on the application of mechanical and engineering principles on the human body. This encompasses the function of healthy non compromised structures as well as treatment options to restore the biomechanical function of the musculoskeletal system after traumatic or degenerative changes. Post graduates of our program are mainly young scientists with a medical or engineering background interested in pursuing a career in clinical environment or MedTech industry.

Lectures and Courses

The minimum study duration is 6 semester. For the programme 180 ETCS points are required. These are composed of 20 ECTS for curricular corses and 160 ECTS for the thesis.

The 20 ECTS for curricular courses are composed of core subjects (8-10 ECTS), seminars (6 ECTS) and general subjects (4-6 ECTS).

Subject specific courses and seminars are offered in yearly intervals, information on general subjects are given by the lecturer. Information on course offerings are provided by our Campus Information System i-med inside.
