The TransMed Curriculum

JGU Mainz offers several graduate and postgraduate programs in various fields of biomedicine, including master and PhD programs as well as DFG research training groups. Since courses that cover overlapping topics and teaching modules of one curriculum may also be of interest for students in another program, TransMed integrates and coordinates these programs, thus providing a common umbrella structure for biomedical education in Mainz.

The TransMed Training Program consists of
