Kassel School of Medicine gGmbH

Study medicine in England and Germany using the latest teaching and learning methods.

Since 2013, the Kassel School of Medicine gGmbH offers physicians a bilingual, five-year fee-based medical study program with a recognised degree. Together with the prestigious British University of Southampton, an innovative study program has been developed, bringing together the experience gained from two different education and healthcare systems combined. We attach great importance to providing our students with the necessary specialist skills and practical skills with a focus on patients as human beings. Above all, we rely on early patient contact, the use of modern teaching methods and the acquisition of initial experience in medical research during the course of studies. 

The quality of our fee-based BM (EU) Medicine Study Program is monitored annually by the UK's highest regulatory authority for medical study programs, the General Medical Council. Our students are enrolled in full-time study at the University of Southampton and are involved in the continuous quality improvement process. The latest audit report is available online at the General Medical Council website.


First of all, Brexit is a political decision that does not affect our teaching quality! As before, we were able to prove in audits that we provide excellent teaching and that we offer high-quality study in two countries - Great Britain and Germany - undeterred by Brexit.

The KSM team

The Kassel School of Medicine (KSM) is a non-profit GmbH (gGmbH) and thus an independent and at the same time wholly owned subsidiary of Gesundheit Nordhessen Holding AG (GNH). The management has Dr. Michael Knapp, also CEO GNH, as well as Dr. Ing. Daniela Stiegel, Head of Human Resources and Legal at GNH. 

The KSM team is small but full of competence, passion and ambition. In Education Management, Mira Pflanz is responsible for the 3rd year of study and for the coordination of research projects, and Andrea Gerling for the 4th and 5th year of studies. To make sure our students always feel well looked after, Marion Rothbart is an important part of the team as study program advisor. The KSM team is led by Amelie Becher as Lead Administration with her agile leadership style. The Foundation Year is also part of the programme. Funda Bösel is the Foundation Year Coordinator for Organisation and Coordination. The so-called Foundation Year Training Program Director is Dr. med. Klaus Weber, who is also the head of the Central Emergency Department of Kassel Hospital. In addition, the care of a FSJ student is a matter of course for the KSM team.

I firmly believe that our graduates, who can take the best of both the British and German health care systems, will be the patient centered, knowledgeable, flexible, resilient doctors of the future that we so desperately need.
