School of Medicine and Health Sciences
The model course at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg started on schedule in the winter semester 2012/13. Previously, the School of Medicine and Health Sciences was established on July 15th, 2012 as the 6th School at the University of Oldenburg. Partners in the new School are Groningen University in the Netherlands and Oldenburg's three hospitals (Evangelisches Krankenhaus, Pius Hospital, Klinikum Oldenburg) in cooperation with further hospitals and local doctors in the North-West region.
This was the first time for more than 20 years that a new university department for medicine was founded in Germany. "This is a supra-regional project with a model character for the country and for the whole of Europe" says Prof. Dr. Hahn, first founding Dean.
